Cooperation with the EIF
2022 January 06
Mano Bankas, a Lithuanian specialised bank, has been cooperating with the European Investment Fund (EIF) since 2021.
On 15 October, 2021 Mano Bankas has signed a portfolio guarantee agreement with the European Investment Fund (EIF) in the context of the Pan-European Guarantee Fund (EGF), one of the EU-emergency measures agreed last year to help European workers and businesses.
The Pan-European Guarantee Fund (EGF) was created by the European Investment Bank Group (EIB & EIF) and EU Member States as a Community response to the then new COVID-19 pandemic. It aims to increase access to credit for businesses in the wake of the economic effects of lockdowns and restrictions to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.Thanks to the guarantee, Mano Bankas made available €50 million in new, more advantageous, lending to Mano Bankas customers.
With the agreement between the EIF and Mano Bankas signed on 18 October, 2022 in Luxembourg, the EIF will provide guarantees for loans under two key policy areas. The sustainability guarantee will support more than €25 million of new debt financing for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to contribute to Europe’s green transition. Projects to make services, products and infrastructure more accessible for people with disabilities are also eligible for these investments. A further €15 million of loans under the SME competitiveness guarantee will support small businesses that were negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and have managed to stabilise their operations but need additional financing to refinance debt, strengthen working capital reserves and/or further invest in ongoing projects.
Cooperation with the EIF allows Mano Bankas to contribute to supporting innovation, strengthening competitiveness and promoting job creation and economic growth in Lithuania. "InvestEU" supports much-needed finance for businesses, innovation and infrastructure, and this programme helps accelerate green and sustainable transformation.
