IFC投资阿富汗国际银行,促进当地普惠金融发展

近日,世界银行集团成员之一国际金融公司(后文简称IFC)宣布获得阿富汗国际银行(后文简称AIB)7.5%的股权,帮助促进其商业贷款发展。

世界银行在一份声明中说,IFC想要通过促进金融包容性,特别是对中小企业的包容性,帮助受冲突影响国家恢复。

2016年阿富汗人均收入为562美元,是亚洲人均收入最低的国家,也是世界上最低的20个国家之一。

根据世界银行集团估计,96%的阿富汗人口没有获得银行服务的渠道。而2014年的一项企业调查(Enterprise Survey)发现,阿富汗只有5%的公司有信用额度,只有2%的公司利用银行满足融资需求。

AIB首席执行官Tony Barned谈到合作伙伴关系时指出,将银行扩展到中小企业中是该机构的战略重点之一,而IFC在中小企业领域的专业知识将帮助AIB发展现有贷款投资组合,通过增加银行金融渠道,让AIB促进阿富汗经济增长。

AIB还将利用IFC提供的全面咨询服务,帮助加强AIB的运营能力,支持其未来增长。

IFC驻阿富汗、巴基斯坦高级区域经理Nadeem Siddiqui表示,中小企业对经济和社会发展至关重要,但许多公司难以获得资金。而IFC的项目将有助于扩展此类企业的融资渠道,同时也有助于在困难时期增强并建立阿富汗金融部门信心,帮助政府推进改革议程。

IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is acquiring a 7.5 percent equity stake in the Afghanistan International Bank (AIB) to help the bank boost its commercial lending.

In a statement, the World Bank said IFC envisages aiding the conflict-affected country’s recovery efforts by boosting financial inclusion, especially for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

Afghanistan’s per capita income of $562 in 2016 was the lowest in Asia and among the 20 lowest in the world.

According to World Bank Group estimates, 96 percent of the Afghan population does not have access to banking services.

A 2014 Enterprise Survey found that only 5 percent of firms had a line of credit and just 2 percent used banks for their funding needs.

Tony Barned, AIB’s Chief Executive Officer, said of the partnership: “Extending banking facilities to small-and medium-sized companies is one of our strategic priorities.

He said IFC’s expertise in SME segment will help AIB to grow its existing loan portfolio, and enable AIB to increase its contribution to Afghanistan’s economic growth by boosting access to bank financing.

AIB will also make use of the comprehensive advisory services offerings from IFC to help strengthen the bank’s operational capacity and support its future growth.

Nadeem Siddiqui, IFC’s Senior Country Manager for Afghanistan and Pakistan, said: “SMEs are critical for economic and social development, yet many still struggle to access funding.”

He said IFC project would help boost access to finance for such businesses and also help strengthen and build confidence in Afghanistan’s financial sector at a challenging time, helping the government with its reform agenda.
