Slavko Carić, President of the Executive Board, Erste Bank Serbia, said: “Erste Bank Serbia is very pleased to continue its successful, long-term cooperation with the EBRD, which allows us to provide competitive financing for SMEs and to increase our support for this important segment of the local economy. This new credit line will allow for the expansion of SMEs and the improvement of overall economic conditions across the country.” 

Henry Russell, EBRD Director for Financial Institutions in the Western Balkans, Ukraine and Moldova, added: “Erste Bank in Serbia has been our partner since 2012 and we are delighted to further deepen our cooperation. The lender is committed to increasing its SME portfolio and has a dedicated team to do so. We are pleased to be able to provide fresh financing and support this important effort.”
