The Blended Finance Facility (BFF) will build on and expand IFC’s existing blended finance platforms by extending support into new high-impact sectors. In sectors already covered by IFC’s blended finance program - SME, agribusiness, and climate change - the BFF will build on the current facilities, leverage existing experience and practices, and bring in additional scale and scope of engagement. Blended Concessional Finance refers to a financing package comprised of concessional funding provided by development partners, and commercial funds provided by IFC combined with additional funds mobilized from co-investors and sponsors in the private sector.
