The World Bank approved a $500 million loan to improve access to electricity in Nigeria and expand the metered network of power distributors.

The money will help distribution companies “make necessary investments to rehabilitate networks, install electric meters for more accurate customer billing and to improve quality of service for those already connected to the grid,” the Washington-based lender said in emailed statement Friday.
