PROPARCO has renewed its partnership with the bank Promerica by allocating it a credit line earmarked to finance SMEs in Costa Rica, which account for the bulk of the local economic base.
Client presentation

The bank is increasingly participating in the SME segment and offers innovative products tailored to the needs of SME clients. Banco Promerica is majority owned by the Central American group Promerica Financial Corporation.

This operation follows on from an initial loan allocated by PROPARCO in 2014, which was earmarked to finance the agriculture sector. In addition, Proparco’s Technical Assistance aims to help the bank increase and implement its range of products for SMEs.
