IFC in El Salvador

IFC is expanding its operations in Central America to become a partner for the private sector and other key players in order to accelerate economic and social development. From its office in El Salvador, IFC operates with an integrated approach providing investments and advisory services to clients and partners.


IFC’s strategy in El Salvador centers on sectors with a strong focus on employment, small and medium enterprise promotion, and climate change – including agribusiness, financial markets, energy, and manufacturing and services. We are also providing advisory services to the ports sector. Since El Salvador became a member of IFC in 1956, IFC has invested $506.2 million in the country’s private sector, including $136.3 million in mobilization.*
