When it’s good for a loan to be fishy

PP Orahovica is an agricultural company with 1262 employees in eastern Croatia, between the river Drava and the lush Papuk mountain. The company has increased their fish production to cover over 4 500 hectares and built a plant to process the fish. This expansion was possible through a 4.4 million EUR loan from HBOR, the Croatian bank for reconstruction and development, supported by EIB.

Creating jobs for young people

The EIB and the Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development (HBOR) signed in Zagreb a EUR 250 million loan to support the projects of local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The loan is part of the EIB’s “Jobs for Youth Initiative”, under which the EIB and HBOR will provide additional support to SMEs that contribute to the creation of jobs for young people.
