Global trade is a vital artery to economic growth. Our Global Trade Finance Program has issued more than $3.9 billion in guarantees to facilitate trade flows in Latin America and the Caribbean since the program’s inception in the region in 2006.
IFC’s strategy in Honduras supports economic growth. Since Honduras became a member of IFC in 1956, IFC has invested $1.1 billion in the country’s private sector, including $221.3 million in mobilization.*
In agribusiness, IFC is focusing on competitive export sectors as well as processed foods. In financial markets, IFC seeks to support banks with trade finance facilities and promote access to finance for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs). IFC is also working with subnational governments and local banks to share the risk in financing road and energy infrastructure projects. Through its advisory services program, IFC aims to improve the investment climate with programs that simplify business regulations at the municipal level.
