IDB Invest uses blended finance to pioneer, de-risk and mainstream innovative business models and technologies to deliver development and social impact in Latin America and the Caribbean.

We provide comprehensive blended finance solutions by combining concessional resources with our own commercial funding through a wide array of financial instruments. These include:

  • debt (such as senior or subordinated loans at softer terms and conditions)
  • equity (patient equity in early-stage, high-impact enterprises)
  • risk mitigation instruments (aggregation platforms and first-loss guarantees to mobilize institutional investors)
  • financial incentives (such as gender performance-based incentives for achieved and verified results)

In addition, we complement our financial offering with non-financial products and advisory services.



As a strategic lender in the region, we use our loans to open up new possibilities for companies to add value, take risks and test new business models.

Capital Markets

By providing bridge loans, partial credit guarantees and other products, we strengthen companies’ ability to issue debt securities.
