EBRD Bolsters Tajik Foreign Trade, Farmer Lending

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development is infusing USD2 million into Amonatbonk to increase the Tajik state-owned bank’s trade financing resources and on-lending services for small and medium-sized farmers in Tajikistan. Half of the funding will come in the form of a revolving credit line under the Tajik Agricultural Finance Framework, while the other half will be used to help launch Amonatbonk’s trade finance services and aid Tajik exporters through trade guarantee facility instruments.
