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.

As stated by the IFC, the proposed investment consists of a package of two unfunded risk sharing facilities for up to MAD370 million (equivalent to US$ 36.7 million) to cover the risk of a portfolio of loans issued by Banque Centrale Populaire (BCP), to finance the acquisition of photovoltaic and drip irrigation equipment from the “Compagnie Marocaine de Goutte-a-Goutte et de Pompage” (CMGP) by farmers or distributors.

The credit lines issued by BCP will either be (i) term loans to farmers or (ii) working capital facilities to Very Small, Small and Medium Enterprises (VSE/SMEs) distributing CMGP’s products.

Investment Description

A financial intermediary is a bank or financial institution that receives funds from a development bank. A financial intermediary then lends these funds to their clients (private actors) in the form of loans, bonds, guarantees and equity shares. Financial intermediaries include insurance, pension and equity funds. The direct financial relationship is between the development bank and the financial intermediary.
Private Actors Description
A Private Actor is a non-governmental body or entity that is the borrower or client of a development project, which can include corporations, private equity and banks. This describes the private actors and their roles in relation to the project, when private actor information is disclosed or has been further researched.

By doing so, the Group has expanded its scope of activities to the storage and trade of Crop Protection Products (CPP), including pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.
