Project Description
WHO IS OUR CLIENT NMB Bank Ltd is a Zimbabwean commercial bank founded in 1992 by three Zimbabweans following the liberalisation of the financial sector. Some of NMB's current shareholders include AfricInvest, Norfund, FMO, African Century and Old Mutual. The bank provides premium financial services to existing and potential high net-worth individuals and businesses and uniquely branded technology enabled products to small and medium enterprises (SME's) and the broader market. FUNDING OBJECTIVE The USD 10 million senior term facility will be used to support NMB Bank Ltd to grow its SME portfolio, an increasingly important focus segment for the bank. WHY WE FUND THIS PROJECT Providing financing to SME's aligns with FMO's strategy to achieve private sector development. The funding is highly additional in the Zimbabwean market with very scarce liquidity.
