InfraCo Africa – Sub Sahara Infrastructure Fund

InfraCo Africa seeks to alleviate poverty by mobilising private sector expertise and finance to develop infrastructure projects in sub-Saharan Africa’s poorer countries.

Support provider 
The PIDG Trust, the governments of the UK, the Netherlands, and Switzerland
Purpose of support 
Project and program implementation
Steps to access  

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.
