- PROPARCO works with local or international private groups under different institutional arrangements: public-private partnerships, concession contracts and responses to bid invitations.
- It offers its clients long-term resources, with maturities of up to 20 years or more.
- Financing is provided for projects which often have complex financial structures and involve numerous types of player: e.g. development finance institutions, multinationals, commercial banks, public sector players, etc.
These investments in infrastructure have a direct impact on local communities which not only gain access to new services but also benefit from their significant economic impacts.
