Ethiop Coffee II

Providing a credit enhancement structure that allows coffee farmer cooperatives to access local currency working capital financing

The project consists of a 3-year Risk Sharing Facility (RSF) for a portfolio of up to ETB 300M (approx. USD 15.2M) working capital loans to coffee farmer cooperatives, originated and serviced by NIB Bank in cooperation with Technoserve (TNS). The loan will enable the farmer cooperatives to buy “cherry” coffee to process into “washed” coffee. Under the RSF, IFC will assume [60]% of the credit risk on the portfolio, up to a maximum IFC exposure of ETB 180M (approx. USD 9M). The remainder would be covered by Nib Bank. In 2015 the project reached 46,462 farmers.
