InfraCo Africa funds pre-financial close infrastructure development in sub-Saharan Africa.

Introducing InfraCo Africa

InfraCo Africa seeks to alleviate poverty by mobilising investment into sub-Saharan infrastructure projects. It does this by funding teams of experienced project developers or by investing directly into projects which need the financial commitment and leverage that InfraCo Africa can bring.

InfraCo Africa’s support reduces the risks and costs associated with early stage project development and ensures projects are developed to the highest standards, from concept to financeable investment opportunity.

InfraCo Africa is part of the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG): it is managed as a private company although funded by governments in the UK (DFID), the Netherlands (DGIS) and Switzerland (SECO). Since its establishment in 2004, InfraCo Africa has developed thirteen projects through to Financial Close. Of these, it has successfully exited five projects and is overseeing the construction and operation of the remainder.

InfraCo Africa’s projects will improve living standards and power economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa.
