46920-014: REG: SUPPLY CHAIN FINANCE PROGRAM

Project Data Sheet (PDS): Details


Description

The program aims to offer an efficient means of managing financial supply chains that would improve access to affordable working capital, and in some cases provide access to finance for companies in developing member countries that would otherwise not be considered as bankable. The program will: (i) enable traditionally non-bankable companies to receive finance; (ii) improve cash flow to enable growth and job creation; and (iii) encourage more financial institutions to develop and broaden supply chain finance (SCF).

Implementation Progress

Description of Project Outputs

The key output will be the establishment of ADB's SCF Program for the purpose of improving DMC company access to working capital. Related outputs include enrollment of five PFIs by 2015, and a 15% increase in the number of DMC companies supported under PFI supply chain programs by 2018 based on baseline and target figures that will be finalized upon the signing of agreements with PFIs.
