SOCIETY

As a result of the cooperation between Acba bank and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) USD 25 million will be directed at the development of Armenia’s economy  through financing micro, small and medium enterprises, as well as companies led by women. Financing will be provided via Armenian drams or U.S. dollars.

Acba bank has attracted around USD 7 million from the mentioned funds in the framework of EU4Business-EBRD credit line program. Thanks to this, the bank will help the local companies increase their competitiveness through raising the quality of their products and services, as well as making investments in "green" technologies. European Union will also provide incentive grants and free technical support to sub-borrowers in the framework of EU4Business initiative. As part of the US$ 25 million financial package, US$ 4 million will fall under the Women in Business (WiB) programme that promotes women’s participation in business and it supported by the EU. Frank Hess, Head of Cooperation of the Delegation of the European Union to Armenia, attended the signing ceremony.
