The proposed investment entails an up to US$45 million A loan to Industrial Pesquera Santa Priscila S.A. (“Santa Priscila” or the “Company”), a shrimp exporter in Ecuador. The proceeds will be used to (i) finance the acquisition of the California farm which entails 1,300 hectares of shrimp farms in the area of Naranjal close to Guayaquil; and (ii) connect this farm to the electrical grid, eliminating the use of diesel power generators in the pumping and automated aeration and feeding systems (the “Project”). The Company expects to decrease Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions while improving productivity levels in its shrimp ponds due to enhanced stability and quality of the oxygenation.

The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
