Project scope and objective

The proposed transaction consists of an unsecured loan to Cresol Baser of up to US$50 million (the “Loan”) funded as follows: (i) an A loan of up US$25 million to be funded by IDB Invest; and (ii) a co‑loan of up to US$25 million to be funded by DEG. The Loan has a four-year tenor, with two years of grace. The Project involves granting Cresol Baser funds to grow its lending portfolio for Micro-, Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises (“MSMEs”) and low-income individuals. Part of these funds (the amount of which is still to be decided) will be specifically used to support the MSME portfolio in the Amazon region. Additionally, advisory services are being designed to help Sistema Cresol (the Company’s network of cooperatives) develop a sustainability strategy.
