Ukraine: Credit Guarantee Scheme Project
Setting-up the Conditions to Establish a Credit Guarantee Scheme (CGS) for Agribusiness SMEs in Ukraine, September 2013 – February 2016
The CGS Project aims at enhancing access to finance for SMEs in Ukraine’s agribusiness sector by supporting the Government of Ukraine in establishing a CGS for agricultural SMEs (100 - 2000 ha) in four pilot regions: Cherkassy, Vinnytsia, Poltava and Kharkiv. The project is fully financed by the Government of Sweden.
The CGS Project puts in place the necessary conditions to set up a credit guarantee scheme for agribusiness SMEs in Ukraine, taking into account both international good practices and the specific context of Ukraine.
Key activities include:
The Project will be co-ordinated by a Task Force with representatives from the National Bank of Ukraine, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food, the State Agency for Regulatory Policy and Entrepreneurship and the OECD Eurasia Competitiveness Programme. The Task Force will closely follow the project’s activities, define the instrument, facilitate the OECD’s field work, and regularly consult with key stakeholders from government and the private sector.
