The Central American Markets for Biodiversity Project (CAMBio), through its Support Program for Bio-friendly MSMEs, allocated resources worth US$5.7 million through more than 794 loans to regional financial intermediaries (banks, cooperatives, and associations), thus benefiting more than 1,779 Central American micro-, small, and medium-sized producers working in such areas as woodland and pasture management systems, coffee and cacao agroforestry, organic agriculture, and sustainable tourism. The Bank also began the placement of partial credit guarantees, the provision of grant assistance for technical and business training, and the awarding of Biodiversity Awards for a total of more than US$133,000 in four of the region’s countries, benefiting more than a thousand bio-friendly microenterprises and small-scale producers.

At the same time, CABEI disbursed US$129.1 million through its support programs for micro-, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) to promote and strengthen 38,550 productive units in the Central American region with its own resources and with funds from the Spanish International Agency for Cooperation and Development (AECID) and the German development bank KfW.
