The financing follows an agreement signed between the Ministry of Economy and Planning, the Development Bank of Angola (BDA), the Credit Guarantee Fund and eight Angolan commercial banks.

 The agreement is aimed at facilitating credit access for producers engaged in the production of goods, which aids to reduce imports.

Based on the memorandum, the banks BAI, BFA and BIC are expected to release  AKz 30 billion each, while Standard Bank is to make available AKZ 20 billion and Millenium Atlântico  Akz 15 billion, Bank of International Business  AKz 6 billion, Huambo – based Comercial Bank AKZ 6 billion, whereas BCI  will provide AKZ 4 billion Kwanzas.

PAC is an initiative of the Angolan government approved by Presidential Decree nº159/19, of May 17, whose aim is to facilitate access for credit to staple food producers.

The project comes for the materialization of the National Production Programme for Diversification and Exports Replacement (PRODESI) created  by the government in 2018.
