April 19 (Bloomberg) -- Ghana has begun negotiations with the Export-Import Bank of China for a $6 billion loan to be used to develop social infrastructure, the Daily Graphic reported, citing Vice President John Dramani Mahama.
The amount will be given in three tranches of $2 billion for education, health, electricity and water projects, the Accra-based newspaper reported.
The facility is separate from a $3 billion loan the West African nation is borrowing from China Development Bank Corp., the newspaper quoted Mahama as saying.
