Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.
The proposed investment consists of a Eur6.5 million senior secured loan to Centre d’Etude et de Développement Industriel et Agricole du Mali SA (“Cediam” or the “Company”), a multi-fruit processing company, operating in Yanfolila (southern Mali), established in 2011 and operating since 2012. Cediam sources mangoes from 2,000 smallholders for export as fresh mangoes as well as to produce mango concentrate and puree packed in drums and exported mainly to Europe and the Middle East, via Montecarlofruit, a Montecarlo-based company specialized in the distribution of fruits as well as products such as puree, concentrates and juices.The proposed financing may also be made available under the private sector window of the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (“GAFSP”), a multilateral mechanism launched by the G20 with the purpose of scaling-up support to help less developed countries alleviate poverty and improve food security, a program implemented by IFC.The investment will help support the company’s expansion plan, which entails: (i) development of a 234 ha land parcel, under acquisition in the Yanfolila region, to produce its own mangoes, tomatoes and passion fruit; (ii) expansion of the storage warehouse at the existing processing facility in Yanfolila and construction of a fresh mango sorting and packing platform; (iii) acquisition of vehicles to expand the transportation fleet; and (iv) installation of a pouch-filling line for tomato concentrate targeting Mali and neighboring countries. This investment would help support Cediam’s vertical integration and diversification projects, aimed at securing fruit supply as well as diversifying its business through products that would ensure year-round operation of the company’s existing processing facility rather than limiting operations to mango processing only for 4 months of the year (April to July). As part of a future expansion project, Cediam plans to install a fruit juice production line using the company’s mango puree. However, this does not fall within the scope of IFC’s proposed investment.
