Company: 
Instituto Superior Autónomo de Occidente, A.C.
Financing Requested: 
Sector: 
Education
Location: 
Country: 
Scope Objective: 
This operation is rather like a corporate loan of US$1 million to be used for purchasing equipment (chiefly laboratory equipment, computers, and some vehicles for transporting teachers to other campuses or to corporate programs). The loan will enable UNIVA to upgrade its equipment.
Environmental Review: 
Environmental Classification and Issues: Environmental Classification: This is a Category II project according to IIC's environmental and labor review procedures because the laboratory equipment, computers, and staff transportation vehicles that will be purchased will have virtually no direct environmental impact.

Environmental issues and labor, control and compliance: As required by the IIC, UNIVA has prepared an Environmental Management Plan covering the main environmental and labor issues related to the expansion plan for its campuses financed under its previous loan from the IIC.
