The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) is considering providing a sovereign loan of up to EUR 6 million, to be on-lent to the Public Utility Company Komunalac (the “Company” or the “Client”), responsible for water and wastewater services in the Municipality, to be co-financed by grants of up to EUR 3 million from international donors (the “Project”).

Assignement Description:
In June 2013, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) extended a third loan to the microcredit foundation MI-BOSPO in the amount of EUR 3 million for on-lending to micro and small business under the Bank’s Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (“MSME”) Finance Framework for Western Balkans  The Framework is designed to support the Western Balkan countries in their transition to a market economy by strengthening the financial system and increasing MSEs access to finance via the non-bank MFI and leasing sectors, thereby enabling the MSEs to increase production and employment.

BOSPO was founded by the Danish Refugee Council, DRC, in 1995, after the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. BOSPO implemented a psychosocial assistance project to the displaced population, predominantly women/mothers, children and the aged. BOSPO launched a microcredit program in 1996. In 2000, as required by the law, BOSPO established the Microcredit Organization MI-BOSPO in Tuzla as an independent legal entity. Its mission was to provide women access to credit and cash and to support them in maintaining and developing their economic activity. Within approximately two years of post war activities, 70% of loan recipients were displaced women.  In line with additional changes in the law, the microcredit organization MI-BOSPO was re-registered into a microcredit foundation in April 2008.

Today, MI-BOSPO is a non-banking microfinance institution that provides loans to micro and small businesses in rural and urban parts of the country. The ongoing MI-BOSPO mission is providing long-term access to financial services for low income women.  Its portfolio is mostly distributed amongst the following sectors:  agriculture 21%, services 9%, small production 3%, trade 7% and secondary loans 21%.

  • Ensure the sustainability of technical co-operation interventions by building the internal capacities of MI-BOSPO in the aforementioned areas through seminars and on-the-job training.

II.1) AGREEMENT PURPOSE OR QUANTITY

II.2.1) Total quantity or objective

 

Purpose of Agreement is financing and implementation of Reconstruction, extension, operation and maintenance of district heating network in order to achieve a sustainable district heating system and its expansion to the remaining parts of Municipality Sokolac urban area and some suburban neighborhoods based on the public private partnership principle pursuant to the Law on Public Private Partnership and other regulations existing in B&H and RS and, in relation to that, improvement of heating quality with increased energy efficieny and prevention of high level pollution.In the Feasibility study, installation of biomass cogeneration plant with Organic Rankin cycle technology for energy production is analyzed with electricity production capacity of 1 MW and heat capacity of 4.1 MW.

The study provides distribution of electricity into the electricity network per feed in tariff of 241.3 KM/MWh. Reconstruction means construction of a network with a primary and secondary circle i.e., with separate hot water pipeline and warm water pipeline. At the same time, the network would be expanded into the entire urban area and some suburban areas. The total heated area after expansion would be 131,592 m2, and total heating needs of consumers 27,479 MWh annually for the reference number of degree-days. The preliminary design provides for installation of 28 heat substations with total capacity of 15,690 kW. Substations and pipelines are created in such a way that they allow subsequent attachment of all constructed facilities within reach of the network.

 

The financial analysis provides that capital investments are realized during the period of 4 years with approximately total amount of 15.2 million  BAM.

 

Net present value: 4.3 milion of BAM for the reference period of 15 years.
