InfraCo Africa was established in 2004. Since then we have successfully developed thirteen projects through to Financial Close, of which we have fully exited five. InfraCo Africa currently has twelve projects under development, five under construction and three operational assets. We are also exploring a range of new opportunities across sub-Saharan Africa.
We’ve mobilised US$1.1bn in committed investment from Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) and the private sector to date. This investment has provided 8.5 million people with new or improved access to infrastructure and generated over 4,200 jobs, improving living standards and powering economic growth.
InfraCo Africa believes in building capacity within the markets and countries that it operates in. It does this by sourcing grants to provide support directly to governments and by co-chairing the Africa Infrastructure Development Association (AfIDA).
