Project Description
FROM FMO: Banco Multiple Ademi, S.A. (Ademi) is the largest MSME-focused financial intermediary in the Dominican Republic and in the possession of a universal banking license since 2013. The bank is a key player in providing credit and savings products to the Base of the Pyramid and promotes financial inclusion in the Dominican Republic. There is a high degree of informality which requires a non-traditional bank like Ademi to provide financing solutions. The majority of Ademi's SME portfolio consists of clients that started off at Ademi as a microenterprise. The loan will be used for on lending to MSMEs, therefore supporting economic growth and jobs.
Investment Description
The FMO will provide a total of USD 17 million, that will be converted to local currency (Dominican Peso) to support Ademi to grow its MSME portfolio.
