The agreement was signed by Davit Tsaava, the Acting General Director of Basisbank and Jonathan Conley, USAID Caucasus Mission Director.
Under the agreement, Basisbank will receive from USAID 50% guarantee for a $6-million portfolio. The term of the guarantee is 4 years. The project is aimed at facilitating the development of small and medium businesses. It is noteworthy that 35% of the portfolio within the guarantee will be used for the development of agriculture.
