Dedicated EIB loan for financing small and medium-sized projects carried out by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and mid-caps, mainly in Spain but also in other EU countries. It is expected that a significant part of the loan will fund investments covered by the SME Initiative signed in Spain.
At least 70% of the loan amount will be used for the financing of SMEs. Up to 30% of the total amount could be used in small investment projects in eligible sectors carried out by mid-cap enterprises (up to 3 000 employees).
The Bank will require that projects financed under this operation comply with EU applicable legislation, as appropriate.
