Who We Are
AFC is a multilateral Financial Institution, created by sovereign African 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 is 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 ensuring that the positive economic growth momentum the region is currently experiencing is maintained and accelerated.
To date, AFC has invested more than US$ 8.7 billion in projects across 35 African countries.
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.
