InfraCo Africa seeks to alleviate poverty by mobilising private sector expertise and finance to develop infrastructure projects in sub-Saharan Africa’s poorer countries.
We are currently looking for new projects to invest into and support through early-stage development. Projects must: be within sub-Saharan Africa; be within power, water or transport sectors; have the potential to be commercially viable (with our support); have a positive developmental impact on the communities they serve; need InfraCo Africa to bring something additional, something that no other party can bring to the project; and be developed in accordance with our Operating Policies and Procedures. Our mandate is to mobilise and not displace private sector investment so we will not get involved in a project if it could attract all of the financing it requires from other private or DFI investors.
As of December 2014, It has received USD 126 million in funding.
