This fundraising is part of the Burkinabé government’s strategy to cover the financing needs of the state budget.

Out of a total auctioned amount of CFAF 30 billion, the issuer ended up with CFAF 90.240 billion in global bids from investors, ie a coverage rate of the auctioned amount of 300.80%.
After adjudication, the Burkinabé Public Treasury retained 32.240 billion FCFA and rejected the remaining 58 billion FCFA, ie an absorption rate of 35.73%.

The reimbursement of the vouchers issued will take place on the first working day following the due date of June 8, 2022. On the other hand, interest is payable in advance and deducted from the nominal value of the vouchers which is one million FCFA.
