Ecobank said in a statement it had signed a $200 million trade finance facility over a period of 3,5 years.

The facility was signed during the AfDB annual general meeting in Kigali by Ecobank group chief executive Albert Essien and AfDB director Alex Rugamba.

The facility comprises two components — a $100 million unfunded risk-sharing facility to bolster Ecobank’s capacity as an international confirming bank for trade transactions originated by issuing banks in Africa and another $100 million trade facilitation loan which will be used by Ecobank to provide trade finance support to local corporates and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Africa.

The facility will support approximately $1,8 billion of trade transactions in Africa.

“This facility will greatly support international and intra-regional trade in Africa. We look forward to an ever-deepening collaboration with the AfDB to provide vital trade finance support to promote regional integration and the development of SMEs across Africa,” said Essien
