We mobilized one of our many crisis-response initiatives to strengthen Continental’s ability to grow and compete. The IFC Capitalization Fund invested $20 million in Continental, sending a strong signal of confidence.
IFC operates with an integrated approach providing investments and advisory services to clients and partners in the Southern Cone. Since Paraguay became a member of IFC in 1956, IFC has invested $739.4 million in the country’s private sector, $42.8 million in mobilization.*
In Paraguay, IFC focuses on sectors where it can have the most impact, such as transportation, electricity, agribusiness, and financial markets. IFC’s strategy in Paraguay seeks opportunities to engage the private sector, expand access to finance for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and low-income individuals, promote global trade, and provide technical assistance to improve the investment climate.
