What is DFC?

DFC is the U.S. Government’s development finance institution.  It mobilizes private capital to help solve critical development challenges and in doing so, advances U.S. foreign policy.  Because DFC partners with the U.S. private sector, it helps U.S. businesses gain footholds in emerging markets, thus catalyzing revenues, jobs and growth opportunities both at home and abroad.  DFC achieves its mission by providing investors with debt financing, equity investments, grants for technical assistance and feasibility studies, and political risk insurance, as well as support for emerging market private equity investment funds.  Investment priorities for DFC include energy, healthcare, critical infrastructure, and technology sectors as well as small businesses and women entrepreneurs.

DFC was established in 2019 through the passage of the Better Utilization of Investments Leading to Development (BUILD) Act.  The Act combined OPIC and the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Development Credit Authority.  For more information about DFC, please see
