Developmental and Regional Cooperation Impact:

The operation is a Leasing, SME and Micro financing loan for on-lending to micro small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs) that is expected to have modest but favorable economic benefits for the Moldovan economy. The most relevant of these benefits is the additional tax revenue gains from increased economic activity resulting from the financing provided. In addition, the financing will help further enhance benefits such as increases in employment, increase in export capacity and competitiveness, and multiplier effects for other parts of the economy. The regional cooperation element is similarly expected to be modest. Other BSTDB countries are important trade partners for Moldova so to the extent that SMEs benefit from financing from the operation and engage in export activities, there will be regional cooperation benefits. The operation is fully consistent with the sectorial and operational priorities outlined in the Country Strategy for Moldova 2015-2018.

Environmental Classification and Impact (summary):

The Borrower is an existing intermediary of the Bank. The gained experience in terms of environmental and social (E&S) management of leasing activities has been positive. Total Leasing has developed and incorporated into its portfolio management a sound E&S management system, which is compliant with BSTDBós requirements and existing good practices, namely with FMO, DEG and EBRD guidelines. Under the previous operation no high risk leasing operations were financed, including those stipulated in the E&S Exclusion List. The annual reporting was accurate and provided in a timely manner. For the purpose of this operation the same E&S terms and conditions will apply as in the case of the existing (initial) leasing facility.
