To help clients address critical funding gaps in their markets, we can blend our lending with grants from private and public sector partner institutions, and philanthropic organisations.

Donor partnerships enable us to tackle global challenges together and make a lasting difference in developing countries.

The Mutual Reliance Initiative allows promoters of investment projects in EU partner countries to benefit from a larger project finance capacity through a structured division of labour.

The largest source of grant finance for EIB mandates for blending outside the EU is the so-called ‘EU contribution’ contracted with the European Commission.
