International Financial Institutions (IFIs)

International Financial Institutions (IFIs) have been established (or chartered) by more than one country and are subjects of the International Law. Their owners or shareholders are generally national governments, although other international institutions and other organizations can be shareholders.

IFIs can provide direct debt financing (for big projects), equity contribution, and credit lines to commercial banks servicing as intermediaries for on-lending to project sponsors (for small and medium projects) called also as credit line facilities.  IFIs can also offer other financial instruments such as loan guarantees, mezzanine financing, and other.

IFIs can provide technical assistance for project preparation and implementation.

Below are the links to the IFIs actively working in Bulgaria.
