Objectives and Scope
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

(1) Consistency with ADB Strategy and Country Strategy. Under the Midterm Review of Strategy 2020, ADB aims to strengthen its support for the finance sector by assisting the development of financial infrastructure, institutions, and products and services; and by promoting inclusive growth. FIAR''s emphasis on funding segments where the potential for employment and income generation is high will support inclusive growth. The ADB loan will help the borrower provide loans to MSMEs in order to realize their investment needs. This is consistent with the government's efforts to promote growth and economic diversification, and ADB''s country partnership strategy with Armenia, 2014-2018.

(2) Consistency with Sector Strategy and Relevant ADB Operations. ADB plays a tangible role in supporting the deepening of financial services in Armenia. In 2011 ADB supported 4 banks in Armenia through senior loans totaling $65 million. ACBA Credit Agricole, Ameriabank, Ardshininvestbank and Inecobank were the banks selected in the SME Finance Program through which ADB loan proceeds were on-lent to SMEs. The loan to FIAR will continue ADB''s efforts in strengthening and developing Armenia's financial market and supporting MSMEs. It complements sovereign programs in the financial sector such as the Women's Entrepreneurship Support Sector Development Program (2012).
