Project scope and objective
The transaction consists of a guarantee of up to US$5 million to support the second closure of Urapi SLU (the “Fund”) until it reaches its target capitalization of US$50 million. The guarantee will be issued for a term of up to 15 years, matching the Fund’s time horizon. The Fund has a regional mandate, with a focus on agroforestry projects.
The Fund was established to invest in projects to restore degraded lands. The Fund’s investments are formalized through special-purpose vehicles created for each project in the different countries where it invests. The special purpose vehicles, which are 100% funded by Urapi SLU, offer (i) equity investments in infrastructure for processing raw materials; (ii) investments in carbon credit sale and issue infrastructure; and (iii) financing for small producers to invest in their farms, improve land-use, and increase productivity. IDB Invest’s guarantee will partially cover the risk of nonpayment of this financing for the small producers.
