Project scope and objective
The proposed credit transaction (the “Project” or “Financing”) consists of a syndicated A/B transaction of up to US$ 200 million to Banco Sofisa S.A. (“Sofisa” or “Bank”), to be structured as follows: (i) US$20 million held by IDB Invest; (ii) US$30 million held by IDB; (iii) US$25 million mobilized through potential cofinancing, financed by IDB Invest in its capacity as administrator of the Chinese Cofinancing Fund for Latin America and the Caribbean (the “Fund”); (iv) US$50 million held by other Co-lenders; and (v) US$75 million mobilized through potential B-lenders. The purpose of the project is to support Sofisa in its efforts to increase financing provided to small and medium-sized enterprises (“SMEs”), including those impacted by COVID-19, and contribute to Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”). At the same time, IDB Invest will provide technical advisory services to Sofisa, enabling Sofisa to increase the share of companies owned and controlled by women in its portfolio of clients, by reinforcing its internal capacities and practices of diversity and inclusion.
