The new loan will help Banca Intesa Beograd meet the growing demand from clients following the coronavirus crisis and will further support access to finance for female entrepreneurs, the EBRD said in a statement.
This is the fourth time the EBRD has provided finance to the Serbian lender under its flagship Women in Business program. The initiative is supported by donor funds from Sweden and Luxembourg.
