Beneficiaries

Loans

Lines of credit

  • To encourage the development of MSMEs, the EIB makes lines of credit available to partner commercial banks or development financing institutions, which then on-lend the funds to their own customers locally. This enables the EIB to respond efficiently to the needs of local communities in the MPCs.
  • MSMEs

Individual loans (generally over EUR 25 million)

  • To develop the economic infrastructure of the MPCs and support larger corporate borrowers. When appraising such operations, the EIB pays particular attention to the expansion of the private sector and to the creation of a business-friendly environment (e.g. via projects to develop critical transport or energy infrastructure).
  • Private and public sector promoters

Private equity and direct equity/quasi-equity investments

  • To promote the creation or strengthening of the capital base of productive businesses, particularly those established in partnership with EU-based companies.
  • MSMEs
  • Intermediate-sized private enterprises
  • Investment funds
  • Microfinance institutions

Guarantees

  • To stimulate local capital markets.
  • To mobilise additional resources, supplementing scarce public capital resources.
  • To support development of sub-sovereign counterparts.
  • To reduce foreign exchange risk and government risk exposure.
  • MSMEs
  • Large corporates
  • Domestic banks
  • Public sector promoters
  • Sub-sovereigns

Advisory services
