Loan portfolio guaranty to strengthen CI Ventures’ ability to provide loans to micro, small-and medium-sized enterprises that operate in sustainable agriculture, forestry, ecotourism and wild fisheries in Mexico, Colombia, and Peru. The project is anticipated to have highly developmental impact in Colombia, Mexico, and Peru by providing an innovative financing mechanism for early-stage conservation focused MSMEs in targeted ecosystems and sectors. CI Ventures provides catalytic early-stage financing where most investors are unwilling to invest, along with support to help borrowers mature their business functions, scale their impact, and become fully investment ready. At least 50% of the Project’s proceeds will benefit underserved regions in Mexico, Peru, and Colombia identified in collaboration with the USAID missions in each country based on their need for investment and vulnerability to environmental degradation.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)
The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
