Partner Banks

Welcome to Turkey MSME Finance Facility!

The EBRD Turkey MSME Lending Programme combines long term loans by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) with advisory and training components (Technical Assistance, TA) to a number of selected Turkish partner banks. The TA component of the programme was launched in November 2010.

The overall objective of the programme is to help partner banks participating in the EBRD Turkey MSME Lending programme introduce and/or further accelerate Micro- Small and Medium Sized Enterprise (MSME) lending techniques to the least economically developed regions of the country, thereby increasing access to finance by MSME borrowers. The programme specifically targets MSMEs, farmers and agribusinesses located in rural areas.


Besides the measures supporting MSME lending, the programme offers focused technical assistance measures to increase credit to the agricultural sector and to enable partner banks to lend at stable levels in rural areas of Turkey. 

Currently Akbank, Isbank, KKB, TEB, Vakifbank and Yapi Kredi Bank are the partner financial institutions of the programme.
