Expanding Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprise Lending Project: Report and Recommendation of the President

Reports and Recommendations of the President | November 2017

The report and recommendation of the President to the Board of Directors (RRP) document describes the terms and conditions of a project for consideration and approval by ADB's Board of Directors. This document dated November 2017 is provided for the ADB project 51162-001 in Armenia.

The proposed loan will support the growth of ABB’s micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) financing portfolio, providing needed financial products and services to this underserved segment. ABB’s strategic focus has prioritized the development of its MSME financing business line, with a particular focus on women-led MSMEs. In addition, the proposed loan will contribute to enterprise development and broader economic growth in Viet Nam through job creation. The longer-termed funding provided under the proposed loan will also assist ABB in balancing its asset-liability maturity profile better, in line with new State Bank of Viet Nam regulations.
