$60 Million for Micro Financing Companies in Nicaragua

BCIE assured it will disburse the funds as credits for the financial sector during 2009, specially for micro financing companies.

Thursday, August 20, 2009

"All of our customers will keep on relying on the resources" commented Edda Meléndez, Country Manager at the Central American Economic Integration Bank (BCIE). "If they can't have the resources is because of eligibility matters and lack of compliance with requirements, not because BCIE is not disbursing funds", assured Meléndez.

The executive made these comments at the signing of a new agreement with the Foundation for Rural Socioeconomic Development (Fundeser), for the renovation of a $2 million credit line.

"These $2 million will be used to support 3.000 families with small loans, assured René Romero, Fundaser General Manager".
