					                   LOAN GUARANTEE PROGRAM
Mercy Corps Mongolia established a Loan Guarantee Mechanism (LGM) in 2004 as part of its Rural
Agribusiness Support Program. Rural agribusinesses experience difficulties accessing credit due to their lack of
collateral. The LGM assists them to obtain commercial loans through provision of additional cash collateral. The
LGM is a component of program activities being implemented for rural economic development with the funding
received from the U.S.Department of Agriculture. This financing activity is not direct lending to business clients
but rather the provision of "additional cash collateral" for commercial loans to rural businesses, that lack of
needed collateral. Since September 2008 Local Business Development Service providers (BDS) are
implementing loan guarantee mechanism.

   1. To support small rural businesses to improve their financial capacity in order to implement their
       business ideas, start and/or expand and/or diversify their business activities
   2. To strengthen the relationship between rural businesses and financial institutions, and to build capacity
       of clients to access to financial resources and use them for business purpose
   3. To increase competition among financial institutions to promote improved availability and accessibility
       of financial services for rural businesses and influence on condition of services they offer.

Loan Guarantee Methodology
   1. Rural Businesses develop a business plan with technical assistance from independent BDS providers.
      The plan allows the Business, Banks and Mercy Corps to identify the opportunities, risks involved and
      financial investment needs of the Business.
   2. Mercy Corps reviews the business plan and if the business plan is considered viable for implementation,
      a formal letter with approval of additional cash collateral will be submitted to the Bank selected by the
   3. The Business presents its plan to the bank, who in turn underwrite the loan and make an offer to lend.
      The business negotiates the loan terms and conditions with the bank.
   4. The bank conducts normal underwriting procedures, values the business's collateral, and then makes a
      formal loan offer.
   5. If there is a shortfall in collateral required, Mercy Corps deposits an amount equal to the difference
      between the loan amount and value of the collateral provided by the business into an interest-bearing
      account at the bank’s head office.
   6. In the event of default, the bank first recovers the value of collateral from the business and then recovers
      the deficit, if any, from the Mercy Corps cash collateral account.

    To date as a result of LGM implementation, 1558 rural agribusinesses have accessed commercial loans
        worth MNT 5.5 billion; MC has provided MNT 2.2 billion as additional cash collateral.
    The repayment rate is 97.37% with 4.49% of loan collateral at risk by the end of 2009 (over 1 month late
