Nicaragua Gvt. Approves US$10 million for Electrification

With a loan from OPEC, the second phase of the rural electrification project on the Caribbean coast will be financed.

The decree must still be approved by the National Assembly, which will receive it in the coming days. The loan was agreed between the Ortega administration and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries.
