ANAPI supported us in the realization of two projects: the construction of a modern 5-level hotel, and the construction of a fuel storage depot. This has allowed us to create several local jobs - and on top of that a national and international reputation - as an investor, the financial community has gotten to know us and our tax contribution has also increased.
So we invite other entrepreneurs to approach ANAPI for support in carrying out their projects. And thus create the emergence of the Congolese middle class.

ANAPI supports KIPAY Investment in the realisation of its project of construction of a 166.8 MW hydroelectric power station, located in a copper zone of Haut-Katanga. This ambitious KIPAY project is an opportunity to create jobs for nationals and expatriates.
Indeed, as an investor in the electrical energy sector, KIPAY is a reflection of the Congolese people’s determination to show their determination.
In order to do so, KIPAY invites other entrepreneurs to get closer to ANAPI for a better support in the achievement and realization of their projects.
