Nacional Financiera, S.N.C.
Financing Requested: 
Financial Services
Scope Objective: 
The IIC seeks to work with Nacional Financiera, S.N.C. (NAFIN) to improve the risk profile of bond placements (emisiones bursátiles) to be carried out by non-bank financial intermediaries and small and medium-size companies, by obtaining better financing terms and conditions for these companies. By introducing a new product such as partial credit guarantees, the IIC also seeks to boost financial intermediation and foster savings in the local financial market. The IIC's participation also opens the door to long-term financing in local currency for companies that are not necessarily exporters.
Environmental Review: 
The Partial Credit Guarantee Program will be a Category III project according to the IIC's environmental and labor review procedure because moderate, specific negative impacts may result that can be mitigated by implementing well-defined, generally recognized solutions.

As part of the evaluation process, the eligible issuers will be subject to an environmental review performed to ensure they comply with the IIC’s environmental and labor review standards. NAFIN has already sent staff to the IIC's environmental training workshop for financial intermediaries.
