Who is our customer

OJSC Hamkorbank, founded in 1991, is the largest privately owned bank in Uzbekistan and is headquartered in Andijan, outside the country's capital Tashkent. Hamkorbank offers a wide spectrum of banking services to its clients, which mainly comprise SMEs active in trade and manufacturing. The bank is the market leader in the remittances business in Uzbekistan. Hamkorbank is an existing FMO client, having received a loan in 2013 for the purposes of on-lending to local micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises.

What is our funding objective?

Hamkorbank is in a transition phase and is expanding; FMO's financing will support this. The bank is well positioned with its primary location in the local Fergana Valley and wants to increase its foothold throughout the country. The provision of scarce risk-bearing capital will allow the bank to attract further long-term funding and increase its loan book by around 6-7 times FMO's investment. The FMO-nominated board member will further help strengthen the bank.

Why do we fund this investment?

FMO's investment will support a higher number of loans provided in the Uzbek economy. In addition to providing financing, FMO hereby creates a precedent that will assist the Uzbek government in its policy to make the country more open for Western foreign investments. With this transaction FMO supports a privately owned Financial Institution, grows FMO's presence in Central Asia and opens up a new market for investment.
