The Project (“ENDA III”) consists of IFC providing support to an existing client, ENDA Inter-Arabe (“ENDA”), in the form of local currency-linked financing. ENDA is Tunisia’s largest existing microfinance institution, having more than 240,000 clients as of June, 2014, of which 70% are women. Average loan size is US$679. ENDA’s micro credit operations commenced in 1995.

Job Creation and Poverty reduction : The proposed investment is expected to have a high impact in facilitating micro and small enterprises access to finance - an area of key strategic priority for IFC. As IFC assists ENDA to increase and diversify its sources of funding, in a difficult economic and sector context, the project addresses the need to serve those segments of the population that lack the most access to credit ; hence seeking to (i) reduce income disparities in the country, and (ii) contribute to job creation. Demonstration Effect and Sector Development : The proposed IFC loan, in a liquidity shortage context, will send a strong signal to international investors and local commercial banks, which will help mobilize additional sources of funding to ENDA and the nascent sector.
