Partial credit enhancements or risk-sharing guarantees can make a potential project more attractive to commercial investors.
In some cases, IDB Invest may become a part owner of a company and share in the risks and potential rewards of a business venture.
Mezzanine financing, which falls on the spectrum between debt and equity, offers financial solutions that senior, secured lenders may be unwilling to provide.

By providing bridge loans, partial credit guarantees and other products, we strengthen companies’ ability to issue debt securities.
As a multilateral development bank, we can structure loans and bonds to expand the pool of funds available for investment in the private sector.
