Who is our customer

Financiera Finexpar S.A.E.C.A (“Finexpar”) is the largest Non-Bank Financial Institution (NBFI) in Paraguay with a total loan portfolio of USD 280mln (Dec-22). The NBFI’s core business is providing credit to SME clients across sectors, the most relevant being agriculture (18.6%), wholesale trade (13.6%), and cattle (10.1%). Finexpar is a Paraguayan regulated entity since 1989.

What is our funding objective?

FMO’s funding will be used by Finexpar to provide loans to SMEs active in primary production or the agricultural value chain.

Why do we fund this investment?

Providing financing to small and medium enterprises in Paraguay will contribute to FMO’s strategic goal of supporting economic growth and job creation. Providing scarce finance to agricultural SMEs supports the creation of income and livelihood opportunities in rural areas, thereby helping to reduce inequalities between urban and rural areas.

What is the Environmental and Social categorization rationale?

The client has been categorized as Category B in accordance with FMO’s Sustainability Policy. Given the NBFI’s primary exposure to SMEs, contextual risk is limited. Environmental and social risk factors (such as land conversion, greenhouse gas emissions, and pollution) are more inherent to large-scale agricultural operations. Finexpar has no exposure to IFC PS TTs. The NBFI will be required to apply the EDFI Exclusion List and Paraguay’s E&S laws and regulations.
