The first agreement is about a 2 billion francs CFA loan (about 3 million euros), essentially for steadily growing technical and vocational education in Mali.
Regarding the second agreement of 3 billion CFA francs granted as collateral, it aims to support the Agricultural Development Bank in financing three sectors which are private education, small and medium enterprises and microfinance institutions.
The collateral provides the coverage and diversification of risk for BNDA’s development activities in those areas considered to be of high growth potential.
