Welcome to PDB FMO Development Center
The PDCenter is a joint-venture of the Nederlandse Financierings Maatschappij voor Ontwikkelingsladen NV (FMO) and Planters Development Bank (PDB). The PDCenter aims to strengthen the institutional delivery of credit and assistance to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) through training and consultancy. It combines the more than four decade experience of Plantersbank in SME financing and the international expertise of FMO in development financing. The PDCenter is a registered consulting firm of the Asian Development Bank.
The courses are designed to develop effective loan officers who can improve accessibility of credit and finance-related support facilities for SMEs, upgrade the skills of lending officers in project identification and promotion, pre-feasibility studies, project appraisal, supervision and remedial management and provide "hands-on" experience in development finance at Plantersbank and selected branches in the countryside.

Consultancy and extension services are offered to institutions engaged in the development and promotion of SMEs. Similarly, the PDCenter undertakes projects in foreign countries where financing, credit and development work are major components or activities. The PDCenter is also open to conducting firm-level consulting in the area of integrated business survey/analysis and strategy formulation upon request.
