For its non-sovereign guaranteed borrowers, the IDB provides private and state-owned companies and financial institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean with the financing necessary to help meet the region's growing demands.
Types of Financing
Financing is offered via a variety of structures including loans, partial credit guarantees, grant financing and political risk guarantees.

Grant financing is available to private and state owned enterprises for pre-investment activities of selected highly developmental projects. Political risk guarantees are provided to eligible foreign debt investors for qualified investments in borrowing member countries.
