RFL Electronics to get $15m loan from UK’s CDC

CDC, the UK’s development finance institution, will provide $15 million in loan to RFL Electronics Limited, a sister concern of PRAN-RFL Group, reports BSS.

The loan will be used to acquire equipment for producing consumer electronic goods for the local market, said a press release in the capital yesterday.

The agreement was signed between RFL Electronics and CDC on Wednesday evening at a hotel in the capital. 

Uzma Chowdhury, Corporate Finance Director of PRAN-RFL Group and Richard Palmer, CDC’s head of Corporate Debt, signed the agreement for their respective organisations.

CDC is investing alongside Standard Chartered Bank Bangladesh which is providing an additional $3 million.

RFL Electronics is now producing television, refrigerator, air-conditioner, rice cooker, blender, microwave oven, electric kettle, infrared cooker, roti maker, room heater, iron and fan under the Vision brand in Bangladesh.

The investment will support the creation of 1,500 manufacturing jobs.

Uzma Chowdhury said, “Consumer Electronics goes a long way in improving livelihood if it can be offered at affordable price. In order to make it affordable, the industry needs a setup within Bangladesh. We are delighted to have CDC as our partner.”

“As Bangladesh’s economy grows we see our investment in RFL Electronics as an opportunity to create jobs, meet the growing demand for consumer goods and help the country boost its local manufacturing,” said Richard Palmer.

Ahsan Khan Chowdhury, chairman and CEO of PRAN-RFL Group, RN Paul, managing director of RFL Group, Srini Nagarajan, head of South Asia, Rahul Shah, Nicolas Pitiot and Partha Shah, investment directors at CDC, among others, were present on the occasion.
