What is our funding objective?
FMO is offering a USD 15mln subordinated loan (non-convertible) to be financed out of the Building Prospects fund to finance part of the capex expansion plan. The investments will be related to the expansion of its packing and housing facilities, equipment & machinery and development of crops. As mentioned, the target is to further develop the land to over 4,000ha.
Why do we fund this investment?
FMO provides financing that commercial banks are not capable to, due to the subordinated character of the loan as the primary source and tenor as the secondary source. FMO’s network enables the company to consider alternative techniques for desalination of irrigation water. On the social side FMO has been advising the company on how to work with local communities on additional development opportunities. FMO will support possible AWS certification for sustainable water management.
What is the Environmental and Social categorization rationale?
Agrovision Peru is a category B+ client. FMO’s preliminary environmental and social due diligence indicates that the investment may have impacts which must be managed in a manner consistent with the following Performance Standards: - PS 1: Assessment and Management of Environmental and Social Risks and Impacts; - PS 2: Labour and working conditions; - PS 3: Resource Efficiency and Pollution Prevention - PS 4: Community Health, Safety and Security; - PS 5: Land Acquisition and Involuntary Resettlement; - PS 6: Biodiversity Conservation; and - PS 8: Cultural Heritage. Furthermore, PS 7 is not triggered since indigenous people are not present in the region, and are not impacted, directly or indirectly, by the financed activities. FMO will periodically review the project’s compliance with the Performance Standards.
