Eligible projects must meet these basic requirements:
1. Does the project or company comply with DFC’s environmental and social standards?
DFC requires that all projects it supports respect the environment, workers’ rights, human rights and local communities, while encouraging a positive impact on the host country. Visit Investment policies to learn more.
2. Is the project or enterprise generating development results aligned with agency priorities and/or advancing US foreign policy objectives?
DFC partners with the private sector to fund solutions to the most critical challenges facing developing countries today. Through its investments, DFC also advances U.S. foreign policy by serving as a stabilizing force in developing countries around the world, including some of the world’s poorest countries and conflict-affected regions.
3. Does the investor or company have a proven track record in the industry?
All projects supported by DFC must be within the purview of the management team and must be demonstrated by a recent and proven track record of success in the same business or in a closely related business, as evidenced by financial statements.
4. Has the investor or company sought financing from private lenders?
DFC complements, rather than competes with, private sector lenders and supports projects that have been unable to secure sufficient support from private lenders.
