  • EFSE and Lazika Capital form a new partnership to advance local currency lending in rural Georgia

    Luxembourg and Tbilisi, 29 December 2021 - The European Fund for Southeast Europe (EFSE) has committed to provide USD 2.5 million equivalent in Georgian lari (GEL) to its new partner, Lazika Capital, to expand access to finance in local currency for the underserved micro and small size enterprises (MSEs), including individual entrepreneurs, farmers and agricultural producers in rural Georgia.  

    As a microfinance organization serving over 15,000 rural and semi-urban MSEs, Lazika Capital is well positioned to channel responsible financing to the target group in an effective and impactful way. By obtaining financing in Georgian lari, the micro and small enterprises can fund their growth and increase their business resilience, viability and stability in the longer run, while being protected from the exchange rate fluctuations – a risk that can materially compromise operations.

    EFSE Board Chairperson Klaus Müller said, “Lazika Capital is a promising partner in joining efforts with EFSE to increase the level of financial intermediation and economic development in rural Georgia. This investment will expand the capacities of Lazika Capital to finance the underserved groups, thus contributing to furthering EFSE’s mission to promote economic prosperity in the region.”

    “Since Lazika‘s creation and still, we have been very much committed to bringing something more added value than just access to finances. And the fact that we are well noted by EFSE, is a honor and additional motivation for us,” said CEO of Lazika Capital, Besik Shengelia.

    Through this investment, Lazika Capital is expected to contribute towards the achievement of SDG 1: No Poverty, SDG 2: Zero Hunger, and SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities.
