CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela opposition leader Juan Guaido, who has proclaimed himself interim president with U.S. support, is considering a request for funds from international institutions including the IMF to finance his interim government, two sources said.

Guaido’s team is planning to name a new board to state-run oil firm PDVSA’s U.S. unit Citgo Petroleum and a new representative to the Inter-American Development Bank, two sources familiar with the discussions said.

Guaido does not yet have control of the state’s functions, which remain loyal to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
