Project Data Sheet (PDS): Overview


This will be ADB s first supply chain finance (SCF) program. It entails the provision of guarantees to and debt financing (both without a government guarantee) through partner financial insitutions (PFIs) to support payments throughout the supply chain. The program limit is $200 million at any time on a revolving basis. As the program will share at least 50% of risks with PFIs, it will bring at least $400 million in new support to companies operating in supply chains. Given the short maturities involved (often as short as 60 days), it is anticipated that the program will generate on a cumulative basis approximately $1 billion of additional support every year it is operational.
