Kazakhstan’s largest bank, Kazkommertsbank, said on Thursday it had been selected by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the state-owned DAMU Entrepreneurship Development Fund to implement ADB’s SME lending program.  ADB will lend KZT7.4 billion ($50 million) to Kazkommertsbank to provide financing to local small-  and medium-size businesses.

ADB said in September it would provide a total of KZT22.2 billion ($150 million) in local-currency financing to support SME lending in Kazakhstan.
