jeremy, thanks for the report.

Skipper you asked "Could these lenders be strong possibilities in funding Allana."

Absolutely and it has been said over and over again that these groups would be on the debt financing side. AfDB was mentioned by Abasov on a CC one time. He said something about talking to AfDB reps while in Arusha (I think it was) a year or so ago. The reps said that it would be easier if they had already some backing from IFC to which Abasov replied that we already had support from them.

I think that the AfDB will be in for sure. And World Bank/IFC will be good for a few more pennies too. They are commited for the long term. I also think some German agency will be supportive and perhaps even a Norwegian one but these are nothing more than guesses.
