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 up to US$30 million unfunded risk sharing facilities with two participating financial institutions, Société Ivoirienne de Banque S.A. (“SIB”) and Baobab Côte d'Ivoire S.A. (“BBCI”), on a portfolio of up to US$60 million. The project will help the participating financial institutions to finance the purchase of approximately 300 heavy cargo trucks by eligible transporters that renew their fleets of 20-year-old vehicles.

People Affected By This Project
People Affected By This Project refers to the communities of people likely to be affected positively or negatively by a project.

The Project is expected to have the following development impact:
Project outcomes:
(i) Stakeholders effects: increased access to finance for approximately 300 cargo transporters that lack the collateral to finance more efficient, safer vehicles and (a) direct impact on their costs and quality of service; (b) indirect impact on local communities through lower goods' prices;
(ii) Environmental and/or social effects with GHG emission savings resulting from scrapping and replacement of 300 old trucks.
Contribution to Market Creation:
Competitiveness: Through competition channel effects, the project is expected to motivate other cargo transport firms to seek to renew their fleets to become more efficient and reduce their costs. IFC also expects the project, underpinned by an improved policy and operating context for the transport sector (market-enabling channel), to eventually also spur other private-sector banks to enter this market in future, without IFC's help, and finance additional transporters seeking to renew their truck fleets.
