Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Serbia received the last 100 million-euro ($130 million) installment of a 250 million-euro loan from the European Investment Bank to finance exports by small- and medium-size businesses.
The funds will be distributed as seven-year loans by banks, chosen by the Luxembourg-based lender, to companies employing as many as 3,000 people, Narodna Banka Srbije said in a statement on its website today.
The EIB approved the 250 million-euro credit line last year and disbursed the first part of 150 million euros.
