World Bank Releases $300m Loan to Ghana – Bank of Ghana Receives Alert

The World Bank has disbursed a $300 million loan to Ghana to support the country’s budget and aid in economic recovery. This loan is the first in a series of three operations, each totaling $300 million, aimed at enhancing crisis response and resilience in Ghana under the Resilient Recovery Development Policy Operation.

The funds, which were credited to the Bank of Ghana’s account on Wednesday, March 27, 2023, are expected to bolster the country’s economic recovery efforts and help stabilize the depreciation of the cedi.
