Who We Are
AFC is a multilateral financial institution, created by African sovereign states to provide pragmatic solutions to Africa’s infrastructure deficit and challenging operating environment, by developing and financing infrastructure, natural resources and industrial assets for the enhanced productivity and economic growth of African states.
To become Africa’s leading infrastructure solutions provider.
To foster economic growth and industrial development of African countries, while delivering a competitive return on investment to our shareholders.
Lack of access to reliable power, inferior transport networks and poor telecommunications infrastructure are restraining economic growth and limiting sector development across the continent, preventing millions of Africans from fulfilling their true potential. By providing project development expertise and risk capital, AFC is helping to fill Africa’s infrastructure void and drive sustainable economic growth.
AFC has invested over US$8.7 billion in projects in 35 countries across Africa since inception.
AFC is committed to investing in projects that will provide substantial, measurable benefit to a region or sector in the long term and will be the template for future infrastructure investment and development. However, the Corporation also considers the short term social, economic and environmental impact. Where possible, the projects utilize local resources and suppliers and jobs are created during both construction and operational phases.
