Marchenko Partners has advised the Western NIS Enterprise Fund on the financing of Printing House in Kramatorsk, Ukraine.
The financing, which was provided in cooperation with Oschadbank, represented the first loan granted within the “Affordable Loans for Social Enterprises in Eastern Ukraine” project.
The Western NIS Enterprise Fund is a USD 150 million regional fund in Ukraine and Moldova with more than two decades of experience in investing in small and medium-sized companies.
According to Marchenko Partners, “this new project is implemented by the Western NIS Enterprise Fund with the support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development within the USAID Economic Resilience Activity. The project is called to develop the economy and solve urgent social problems in Eastern Ukraine.” According to the firm, “it envisages granting loans with the interest rate of 5% per annum, which is one of the lowest rates for Ukrainian entrepreneurs.”
The Marchenko Partners team was led by Partner Roman Shulyar and included Senior Associate Bogdan Burlaka and Associate Oleksandr Poznyakov.
