Who is our customer

PRAN-RFL Group (PRAN) is one of the prime conglomerates in Bangladesh. It was founded in 1981 and became the largest food and nutrition company of the country. The company's principal activities are the manufacturing and sale of fruit juices, snacks, soft drinks, cakes and dairy products (under the PRAN brand). Activities are also related to the plastics industry which are sold under the RFL brand.

What is our funding objective?

FMO was invited by Proparco to co-finance MymenSingh Agro Ltd (MAL), which is the largest company of the PRAN-RFL Group. Proparco and FMO finance the expansion of MAL's production facilities related to their mango juice, mineral water and soft drinks activities. The facility will also refinance part of the local long-term loans. The transaction concerns a 7 years senior secured USD 13 million facility, in which Proparco and FMO participate for USD 8 million and USD 5 million respectively.

Why do we fund this investment?

Long-term USD funds are not available from local commercial banks. In addition, the Lenders will assist PRAN in establishing environmental, social and corporate governance improvements which would have considerable positive impact on PRAN. The Project will also create economic growth through job creation, both direct and indirect.
