In 2020, Proparco’s priority was to support its clients to limit the impact of the health, social and economic crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. This situation also prompted Proparco to strengthen its partnership approach, especially with its European counterparts (EDFIs) and the European Union.

Consequently, the AAF fund, whose minority shareholding stood at 13.5% of the capital, is no longer a shareholder of PHC in the Democratic Republic of Congo. AFD Group, an investor in AAF, no longer has any connection with PHC - Feronia.
