Marchenko Partners has advised the Western NIS Enterprise Fund on its provision of unspecified loans to Veterano Pizza Mariupol and the AnVita medical center.
The WNISEF is a regional fund that invests in small and medium-sized companies, funded by the U.S. government via the U.S. Agency for International Development.
According to Marchenko Partners, the loans were provided together with Oschadbank, and granted "within the ‘Affordable Loans for Social Enterprises in Eastern Ukraine’ project.”
Veterano Pizza is a social enterprise in Ukraine that supports the Donbas war veterans. The enterprise will use the loan for the procurement of necessary equipment for its branch in Mariupol, carrying out maintenance work, and hiring new employees. The AnVita medical center, which is located in Dobropillia, Ukraine, will use the funds for the procurement of medical lab equipment.
Marchenko Partners’ team included Partner Roman Shulyar, Senior Associate Bogdan Burlaka, and Associate Oleksandr Poznyakov.
