Bpifrance receives loans from the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) to refinance its loan operations.

The Concil of Europe Development Bank (CEB) is a multilateral development bank with a social mandate.

CEB was established on 16 April 1956 to provide solutions for the problems of refugees. Its scope of action has gradually expanded to other areas that directly promote social cohesion in Europe.

The Bank has 40 Member States, of which 18 are from Central and Eastern Europe.

The CEB represents a major policy instrument for furthering solidarity in Europe and finances social projects by leveraging funds based on its ratings (AAA from Standard and Poor's, Fitch Raings and Moody's).

In accordance with its mandate, the Bank provides loans to its Member States, financial institutions and local authorities for projects in the social sector.
