Baku. Elnur Huseynguluyev – APA-Economics. Azerbaijan-based Access Bank plans to receive a $25 syndicated loan by the end of this year, said the bank’s board chair Dr Andrew Pospielovsky.
He added that the two-tranche loan will be syndicated by at least 10 European banks, including EBRD as lead arranger.
“The first tranche is expected to be available in October-November and the second in December. The proceeds of the loan will go to small and medium-size enterprises,” he added.
Microfinance Bank of Azerbaijan changed its name to Access Bank after approval by the National Bank of Azerbaijan this month.
