Tegucigalpa, January 24, 2022.- The Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) approved a US$60.0 million line of credit to Banco Cuscatlán de El Salvador to promote the economic reactivation of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and enhance the competitiveness of the business sector.
