    The BRICS New Development Bank (NDB) has approved the first package of loans in the amount of $811 million for projects in the renewable energy sphere, the bank said in a Saturday release.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) – The four projects — one from Brazil, one from China, one from India and one from South Africa — were presented during the spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank in Washington.

    NDB is allocating $300 million to Brazil, $81 million to China, $250 million to India and $180 million to South Africa.

    With initial capitalization of $100 billion, the bank began operations on July 21, 2015.
