We are scaling up our projects! The Inter-American Development Bank has recently approved US$5 million loan to ABACO Credit Union in Peru that will help expand credit available for rural productive chains. We are proud to have been part of building and consolidating ABACO’s capacity and expertise in the sector through two MIF operations that were decisive in attracting IDB loan resources. http://bit.ly/1PzXMlB

project highlights

Carbon finance in Mexican households

In the Valley of Mexico and in Northern Baja California, residential water fixtures are typically inefficient, using about 40% more water and 25% more energy than more modern, water-saving devices available on the market. The MIF partnered with Camino Sabio Azul to achieve economic savings for low-income residents through reduced water usage by implementing water- and energy-saving devices using financing from carbon credits.
