Through a growing network of private sector organizations, EDN greatly extends OPIC’s ability to provide financing and political risk insurance (PRI) to more micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) doing business in developing countries.
OPIC assists U.S. companies by providing financing (from large structured finance to small business loans), political risk insurance, and investment funds.
The structure of EDN consists of three service providers. Loan and Political Risk Insurance Originators (Originators) serve as local service providers to micro, small-medium enterprises (MSMEs) to help develop the OPIC application package, refine marketing strategies, and draft or enhance business plans. Financial institutions serve as Designated Lenders to establish OPIC-backed lending facilities that are used to make loans to MSMEs or their affiliates for projects in OPIC-eligible countries. EDN Advisers are specialists in particular business sectors and geographic areas throughout the world and assist OPIC in credit underwriting and due diligence on OPIC-funded loans.
