Project scope and objective
The proposed financing consists of an unsecured senior loan denominated in U.S. dollars (“US$”) to Banco de América Central, S.A. (“BAC El Salvador” or “the Bank") of up to US$60 million, comprising: (i) an “A” loan from IDB Invest of up to US$40 million with a term of five years; and (ii) a loan from the China Co-financing Fund for Latin America and the Caribbean (“China Fund”) of up to US$20 million (the “Financing”) with the same term. The transaction will support the growth of BAC El Salvador’s “Mujer Acelera” program by providing financing to women led/owned small and medium-sized enterprises (“SMEs”). The project is additionally expected to include advisory services to strengthen the Mujer Acelera program, as well as to support this segment in adopting new operating procedures in the context of the COVID-19 crisis through training sessions, virtual advice, and financial support (provided BAC ES has analyzed these options).
