The guaranteed facility, valid for ten and a half years with a tenor of up to two years for each standby letter of credit issued, seeks to increase access and connectivity to mobile broadband and increase opportunities for the most vulnerable sectors of Colombia, helping to close the digital gap in that country.

The Hogan Lovells team was led by partner Ricardo S. Martinez and associate Christopher Bonilla, both in New York, and associate Luis Leos in Houston.
