PRASAC, the leading micro finance institution in Cambodia marked its debut in the syndicated loan market with a USD 60.5 million facility. The transaction is reported to be the single largest ever micro finance syndicated facility worldwide.

PRASAC’s extensive, large branch network combined with its rural focus ensures that proceeds are to finance a very large number of loans for micro, small and medium sized companies throughout Cambodia. This transaction will in general benefit private sector growth in Cambodia.

How committed is Europe to development really? Owen Barder

How committed is Europe to development really?  Owen Barder | European Development Finance Institutions | Scoop.it

Europeans more than pull their weight in aid to developing countries. Last year Europeans provided more than €60 billion ($80bn) in aid, more than two and a half times as much as the United States. European members account for just 40% of the national income of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) but give more than 60% of the aid.

Furthermore, Europeans have reason to be proud of the quality of aid they give. They tend to focus on poverty eradication and sustainable development, and have largely shaken off the vested commercial interests in tied aid.
