First Loss/Blended Finance
In addition to providing commercial financing, IFC uses a number of complementary tools to crowd in private sector financing that would otherwise not be available to projects with high development impact. One such approach is to blend concessional funds—typically from development partners—alongside IFC’s own commercial funding. Blended finance can assist in mitigating early-entrant costs or project risks, helping re-balance risk-reward profiles for pioneering investments and enabling them to happen.
