IFC has decades of experience providing finance and sustainable business solutions in the metals and mining sector. Our contributions include mitigating environmental and social risk, providing advice on community engagement, and implementing shared-use infrastructure.
We finance mineral development projects across all stages, including construction, production, and expansion, with a focus on impact investing for sustainable economic growth. Our advisory work facilitates initiatives such as supply chain linkages and stakeholder development, as well as mitigates social and environmental risks in line with global best practices.
Our long-term competitive financing instruments are tailored to meet project needs, including equity and quasi-equity, corporate- and project-level debt, and mobilized capital from third-party sources.
Millions in Mining Revenues
What happens when one of Peru’s poorest regions is at the center of a big mining boom? Mining revenues in the Andean region of Apurimac have increased 400 percent in the past decade. IFC is working with communities to plan for long-term development, and sharing best practices from years of experience with mining projects in Latin America.
