InfraCo Africa seeks to alleviate poverty by mobilising private sector expertise and finance to develop infrastruture projects in sub-Saharan Africa. 

InfraCo Africa is part of the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG), who has supported 170 projects to financial close, 82 of which were in fragile and conflict-affected states 

Through the PIDG, InfraCo Africa receives funding from the governments of the UK (DFID), the Netherlands (DGIS) and Switzerland (SECO) and has received US$ 170 million in funding to date. InfraCo Africa is operated as a private limited company and provides funding and expertise to projects at their earliest stage, enabling them to grow from an initial concept to a bankable investment opportunity. 

InfraCo Africa partners with host governments and the private sector, working with both to address market gaps and to help develop the regulatory frameworks needed to enable private sector participation in infrastructure.
