Project Description
WHO IS OUR CLIENT Acceso Crediticio is a taxi leasing company in Lima. FUNDING OBJECTIVE Financial inclusion. WHY WE FUND THIS PROJECT Acceso's financing makes possible that, with one year of experience as a taxi driver in Lima, the drivers can purchase their own taxi. Most of Accesoa€™s clients would not be eligible for any regular car leasing schemes, given their lack of credit history. Through a system of loan repayments at the gas station and a car maintenance model with high Acceso involvement, these taxi drivers become bankable. Additionally, as the taxis are CNG fueled, the emissions of the Acceso financed taxis are lower than for petrol fueled cars, leading to relevant CO2 avoidance. As this funding transaction is highly inclusive and given the relatively high credit risk profile of the institution, the transaction will be financed from MASSIF. We will lend the local currency equivalent of USD 10 million to Acceso for 4.5 years. This transaction is a follow-up of a smaller loan provided by Locfund, a regional microfinance fund of which FMO, through the MASSIF fund, is a founding shareholder.
