BOAD has been a customer of OeEB since 2012. Based on the good cooperation, another long-term credit line was signed in October 2020.

Project name Banque Ouest Africaine de Développement (BOAD)
Region Sub-Saharan Africa
Sector Energy / Resource efficiency / Infrastructure
Service Investment Finance
OeEB project volume EUR 30 million
Projekt partner(s) Banque Ouest Africaine de Développement (BOAD)

The EUR 30 million credit line is dedicated to the private sector and is intended to help securing existing jobs and create new ones.

Due to the diverse economic challenges, the WAEMU region is not homogeneous from an economic point of view, also due to different growth rates. In order to support sustainable economic growth, the funds will be channeled into all sectors that can be financed by OeEB, such as infrastructure and energy, manufacturing and agriculture.
