According to the Bank’s website, the proposed investment is a debt facility to Sococim Industries, the largest integrated cement manufacturer in Senegal to fund a partial replacement and modernization at its existing facility near Dakar, Senegal. Sococim is a subsidiary of Vicat S.A, an existing and strategic client for IFC, and one of the top global cement makers.
IFC’s facility will enable Sococim to replace and modernize part of its existing capacity with a modern fuel-efficient kiln with Best Available Technology. Further, the Project will enable the Company to replace all of its clinker imports.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
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
