Glencore is the 14th largest company in the world. They were the company who gave the government of Chad 1.4 billion dollars to buy 25% of their oil infrastructure (which itself makes up 98% of the economy) from Chevron, in a 4-year loan coming due in 2018 that the Chad government will not be able to pay.
