The first technical assistance programme will further strengthen credit risk management and the adoption of SME financing best practice to enable Banque Misr to increase financing for smaller companies.
“Banque Misr and the European Investment Bank are supporting transformational private sector investment by Egyptian companies across the country. It is an honour to welcome Vice-President Vigliotti and the EIB team to Banque Misr’s headquarters,” Akef El Maghraby, Vice-Chairman, Banque Misr said.
“The two new technical assistance programmes agreed today will enable even stronger support for business investment and help smaller companies to grow, create jobs and harness new business opportunities.”
On the sidelines of this agreement, a visit was conducted to one of the small enterprise clients who benefited from the financing, reviewing the extent of clients’ benefits from the financing scheme and its positive impact on the project’s expansion.
“The two new financial sector best practice agreements confirmed today will allow Banque Misr to increase financing for smaller businesses and enhance targeted financing for sustainable investment and sectors most impacted by COVID-19.
Banque Misr is always keen to enter into cooperation agreements to enhance the financing of projects of different sizes, owing to its leading role in supporting the Egyptian economy and achieving sustainable development.
