BCP Bank (Mauritius) Ltd is the Mauritian subsidiary of one of Morocco’s leading banking players, Groupe Banque Centrale Populaire. Formerly known as Banque des Mascareignes and owned by BPCE, BCP Bank (Mauritius) Ltd was taken over by BCP Group in 2018.

Proparco is a subsidiary of Agence Française de Développement (AFD) focused on private sector development.

According to the transaction brief, the loan will help to finance priority investments in Africa, as well as trade flows between Africa and Asia via the trade finance activity. The credit line is also expected to be used to promote investments in projects with climate co-benefits.
