On May 2, the Board of the World Bank took decision to allocate $150 million reimbursement to Ukraine as part of a long-term loan for funding export-oriented small and medium-sized enterprises, Censor.NET reports citing LB.UA.
According to the World Bank, access to long-term funding provided for small and medium-sized enterprises will help Ukraine increase exports and contribute to the country's economic growth.
The project will be implemented by Ukreximbank. It will give sub-loans to the banks participating in the project, which, in turn, will provide funding to the small and medium-sized enterprises. They will be selected taking into account their financial condition and ability to develop successful export-oriented business case.
The World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development are Ukraine's key contributors.
