Financial sector

Financial Sector

  • Kosovo’s financial sector started to function in 1999 with establishment of Banking and Payment Authority of Kosovo (BPK)

  • Today, Kosovo’s financial sector comprises of: seven (7) Commercial Banks, fourteen (14) Micro Finance Institutions (MFIs), tree (3) Other Non-Bank Financial Institutions, eight (8) Insurance Companies, one (1) Kosovo Pension Saving Trust, and two (2) Money transmitter.

  • In mid 2005 total deposits of the banking sector was around 742 million Euros (30% of GDP), total loans granted was around 412 million Euros (20% of GDP),

  • Non-bank financial institutions loans granted was around 49.9 million EUR (10.7% of total loans)

  • The structure of the loans: is relatively uneven to some sectors. 84.1% were channeled to the services sector


Problems to be addressed

Problems to be addressed

  • Although the volume of loans from commercial banks has increased during the last years the current level of lending for agricultural sector is low,

  • it is limited to a few sources

  • Lending to agricultural sector by MFIs is at minimal or at pilot level,

  • is not covering demand in this sector

  • Credit methodology of these sources relies heavily on short-term loans with frequent, regular repayments

  • Even if MFIs expressed a desire to increase lending into the agriculture, they don’t have sufficient liquidity in order to increase short and medium-term lending with their own funds.


Strategy

Strategy

  • The aim of the project is to improve access of farmers to short and medium term finance through

  • i) creation of loanable capital/credit line that will provide necessary capital that MFIs require to expand their lending for the agriculture sector and

  • ii) supporting the capacity development of MFIs in agricultural lending.
