Evaluation of EIB Intermediated Lending through the Investment Facility in ACP

February 2018, 

The European Investment Bank has published an evaluation that assesses the extent to which EIB intermediated lending through the IF has contributed to improving access to finance and strengthening local financial sectors in ACP countries. CSIL experts contributed to this study with background reports for the case studies. Moreover, they developed a database of IFIs' lines of credit delivered to financial institutions in ACP countries, and carried out a literature review of evaluation reports focusing on intermediated lending targeting SME development.
