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. The borrower''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 and farmers in order to realize their investment needs. This is consistent with ADB''s country partnership strategy for Pakistan, 2015-2019, which specifically identifies inclusive growth through supporting financial services to segments whose access to finance is limited.

(2) Consistency with Sector Strategy and Relevant ADB Operations: ADB plays a tangible role in supporting the deepening of financial services in Pakistan. ADB has been active in the sector since 2000 through the Microfinance Sector Development Program (MSDP) of which KBL was a beneficiary. The proposed loan to KBL will continue to build on ADB''s past efforts in supporting financial inclusion and widening access to finance.
