ITFC Pledges US$ 875 Million to Support Burkina Faso 2016-2020 Development Plan
ITFC Pledges US$ 875 Million to Support Burkina Faso 2016-2020 Development Plan

Dubai, UAE, December 12, 2016:  The International Islamic Trade Finance Corporation (ITFC), a member of the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) Group, announced a pledge of USD875 million to support Burkina Faso’s National Program for Economic and Social Development (PNDES). The amount represents a significant portion of the IDB Group total pledge, which amounts to USD1.3 Billion. 

The declaration of the contribution took place on December 07, 2016, during the Burkina Faso’s Development Partners Conference, which was organized in Paris. 

In line with ITFC’s mandate to improve lives and enhance the welfare of its member countries, ITFC was keen to express its full support to Burkina Faso’s PNDES. The overall goal  of the subject development plan is to achieve the required structural transformation of the Country’s economy, leading to a strong, sustainable and resilient growth that creates decent jobs and improves people’s social welfare.

It is worth mentioning that despite the political challenges faced by the country recently, the dynamism and professionalism of Burkinabe authorities have allowed ITFC to stand by its member country and expand its activities while creating more awareness on Islamic finance.

Following the Framework Agreement signed in June 2014 with the Government of Burkina Faso, ITFC has been able to build and grow a healthy portfolio of operations in the country, with a total financing of USD 699.75 Million since inception. 

Over the last years, Burkina’s diversified portfolio has reached the status of ITFC’s first beneficiary country in Sub-Saharan Africa, ie. a model to be replicated in other member countries, with operations in all essential sectors: Agriculture with Sofitex (the national cotton company), Energy with Sonabhy (the national petroleum company),Food&Agro-business with Kanis International (a leading importer of foodstuff), and SMEs financing with Coris Bank International (a major West African bank).
