The IFC said in its investment disclosures: “The proposed project involves the second renewal of the existing funded risk-sharing facility with Standard Chartered Bank for a trade finance facility of $80 million to support ETG agri-commodity trader’s export of cash and food grains, storage, and import of fertiliser in sub-Saharan Africa.”

“IFC’s investment amount will be up to $40 million,” the global financier added.
