IFC in Peru

IFC operates with an integrated approach providing investments and advisory services to clients and partners in Peru. Since Peru became a member of IFC in 1956, IFC has invested $3.1 billion in the country’s private sector, including $1.1 billion in mobilization.*


IFC’s strategy aims to improve the investment climate and support key players in Peru’s private sector that can expand services and products to under-served sectors.


IFC provides advisory services to simplify regulations at the municipal level, facilitate business registration, and create opportunities for small businesses seeking entry into the formal economy. We support programs that mobilize local benefits to regions receiving royalties from extractive industries and that ensure environmentally and socially sustainable growth. IFC invests in industries with strong competitive advantages in Peru, such as agribusiness and tourism. We focus on expanding access to finance for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), as well as access to housing and education finance.
