Development of Standards for Microlending in Russia

 | Published November 29, 2016  -  Deadline December 19, 2016
cpvs

Assignment Description:

Access to finance for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the last years in Russia has deteriorated on the back of the economic recession as well as overall business environment uncertainty: based on the Central Bank of Russia (CBR) statistics, the loan portfolio issued to MSMEs by banks decreased in 2015 by 27% (6% reduction in 2014) and the loan portfolio to individual entrepreneurs almost halved (47% reduction in 2015 vs. 2014).

Measures of state support to MSMEs and banks' lending to MSME, such as: development of state guarantee support by the Corporation for SME Support; roll-out of the "6.5 Program" (CBR funding at 6.5% to selected banks for further on-lending to SMEs at a capped margin); improvement of conditions for refinancing for banks by the CBR, etc. somewhat helped renew the growth of lending to MSMEs in many regions of Russia but still could not prevent an overall reduction of the loan portfolio to MSMEs in the first half of 2016 by about 2%.

Further planned steps of MSME support envisage a gradual standardisation of approaches to MSME lending for market participants with the objectives to improve risk management, to develop and diversify financial market operations as well as to protect consumer rights.

In Russia, the Self-Regulated Organisations ("SROs") are required by the CBR's legal order to develop these standards (the "Standards"), which would apply to their members - Microfinance Organisations. The SROs need to submit these standards to the CBR who will present it to Standartisation Committee within CBR, discuss and review the Standards, then agree Standards with Ministry of Justice and adopt and ratify them. Currently there are three SROs in Russia. These are Mir, Alliance and Edinstvo. Any Microfinance Organisation must join a SRO.

The Central Bank of Russia requested assistance from the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development ("EBRD") in developing the Standards.

The EBRD wish to engage a consultant to assist the SROs and the CBR in this important activity. It is envisaged that the following basic Standards will be developed/finalised under the assignment:

- Standard for Risk Management;

- Standard for Financial Markets Operations for Microfinance Organisations (including underwriting and attraction of funding from individuals;

- Standard for Assessment of Microfinance Organisations (for banks).

The key focus of the assignment will be on the following:

  • Review and improvement of the existing draft Basic Standard for Microfinance Organisations on risk management.
  • Assistance in the development of a Basic Standard for Financial Markets Operations (including loan underwriting and attraction of funds from individuals).
  • Assistance in the development of a Basic Standard for the Microfinance Organisations' assessment.
  • Presentation of the Standards to the market and provision of training to market participants.

Assignment Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in January 2017 and has an estimated overall duration of 12 months.
Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 230,750; exclusive of VAT.

The consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the Bank's special status as an IFI and state this to the Bank in their response to the Invitation for Expressions of Interest. To the extent that a consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purhcased in connection with the provision of services (e.g. VAT on airline ticket) which is not otherwise recoverable by the consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the consultant of such expenses shall be treated as a reimbursable expense.
