HYSACAM is Cameroon’s number one private waste management contractor. It handles waste management services in 17 cities throughout the country. It collects over 1.5 million tonnes of waste a year or 4,000 tonnes a day. HYSACAM employs 4,000 people and has a fleet of several hundred trucks. In October 2017, PROPARCO is providing a guarantee for 11.025 billion CFA francs (XAF) (€16.81 million), to cover the loan granted by three local banks to Hysacam. This will help renew its fleet of over 200 trucks in order to improve waste collection services in cities throughout the country. PROPARCO is also helping HYSACAM to enhance its corporate social responsibility.
