Private sector

Funding of projects with corporate participation

Sida’s and Sweden’s funding for projects that involve corporate participation can be divided into four parts:

Direct funding to corporate venture

Our cooperation partners manage the selection and administration.

Guarantees, loans or financing

that is granted to a company’s customer, often a government, government agency or state company. These are granted by Sida directly, or in the event of substantial amounts, by Sweden’s government. Other amounts can be granted by Sida’s partner organisation, PIDG.

Investments in or loans for companies in developing countries

that are provided by the venture capital organisation Swedfund and by IFC, International Finance Cooperation, a company within the World Bank Group.

Financing of a project of one of Sida’s cooperation partners

In such cases, companies from any country can be subcontractors. Most of the projects that Sida finances are procured by the organisations, countries and government agencies with which Sida regularly works. You can read more about the process under ‘Procurements’ here at Sida.se
