IFC in Uruguay

IFC operates with an integrated approach providing investments and advisory services to clients and partners in the Southern Cone. Since Uruguay became a member of IFC in 1968, IFC has invested $561.9 million in the country’s private sector, including $150 million in mobilization.*


IFC’s strategy in Uruguay targets sectors where the country is internationally competitive. In the financial sector, IFC aims to support banks and other financial institutions that focus on the mid-market corporate and low-income retail banking segments.  In agribusiness, our focus is on export-oriented enterprises working with small- and medium-sized farms.  IFC seeks to bolster competitiveness by financing infrastructure projects, especially those in the renewable energy, logistics, and water sectors.  We also support private sector education institutions, particularly those that offer technical and vocational courses for low-income students.
