CAIRO, March 30 The African Development Bank has
disbursed a $500 million loan to Egypt, the bank's
representative in Cairo told Reuters on Thursday.
Leila Mokaddem said the disbursal, the second of three
expected loan tranches from the bank to Egypt, came into effect
on Thursday and the funds would be received early next week.
Egypt has been negotiating billions of dollars in aid from
various lenders to help revive its economy, battered by
political and economic upheaval since a 2011 uprising.
