Mi-Bospo is the fourth-largest microfinance institution in Bosnia and Herzegovina and was established as a World Bank pilot project in 1996.

The EBRD funds will allow Mi-Bospo to expand and provide more finance to local and regional businesses with growth potential.

Access to finance remains an obstacle for many small firms in Bosnia and Herzegovina despite the fact that they form the backbone of the country’s economy, the EBRD said.
