Supporting EBRD’s partner financial institutions and their operations in Uzbekistan

Complementing the Bank’s investment transactions in the country

The FIDP helps to strengthen institutional capacities of participating banks through the development of tailored lending activities to micro-, small and medium enterprises (“MSME”) in Uzbekistan and the implementation of sound banking principals, a comprehensive risk management framework and best practice corporate governance structures.

The MSME sector is considered the engine of economic growth in Uzbekistan.
