Togo will receive a grant from the International Development Association (IDA) of 6.4 billion FCFA for the financing of the Project to Support Private Sector Development (PSDP) and another 7.34 billion in additional funding for the Project Emergency Rehabilitation infrastructures and Electrical Services (PURISE).
