During its 342nd period meeting under the chairmanship of H.E. Dr. Muhammad Al Jasser on Sunday, the Islamic Development Bank has approved $20.15 million for a rural electrification project based on mini solar power plants in Togo.
In addition, the IsDB announced that its Lives and Livelihoods Fund provided $10.85m to improve the level of human development in Togo by delivering sustainable supply of electricity to the rural population of Togo. It benefits 372 schools, 22, 092 families, and 102 health centers.
The Jeddah-based institution is a traditional partner of Togo’s electrification agenda. It has notably already released $49m in the form of loans to support projects in the north of the country, including the extension of the 161 kV high voltage network of the CEB from Dapaong to Mango.
