The memorandum, signed on the margins of the historic U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, aligned OPIC, Wells Fargo and Attijariwafa’s efforts to expand lending to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Morocco and other African countries where Attijariwafa operates.

The summit drew nearly 50 African heads of state as well as private-sector business leaders to Washington for a week of both official and informal meetings. OPIC participated in more than a dozen events with African government officials and private-sector business representatives to underscore the opportunity of private investment in Africa.
