The Bank is lending $150 million to aid Uganda’s local governance, $50 million for South Sudan’s local governance delivery programme and another $50 million credit to boost technical assistance in Mozambique’s mining and gas sectors.

The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors separately approved the funds on March 28, 2013 and each of the countries has 40 years to payback the loans with a ten-year grace period.
