We invested in new sectors

Agribusiness

Challenge: Agriculture needs to double its current production levels to be able to feed the world by 2050.

Solution: We worked with anchor companies to finance value chains and financed companies with high impact on development.

Impact: We financed Renova, the world’s largest soybean processing plant, in one of the most important agribusiness operations in Latin America and the Caribbean in 2017.

Solution: We developed financial structures and innovative products to help telecommunication companies expand their services.

How we work

We are a new multilateral organization that is growing and constantly evolving. And with it, so is our own culture.
