MCC’s Investments in Latin America by Sector

Numbers represent compact commitments as of Dec. 31, 2017.

Since its founding in 2004, the Millennium Challenge Corporation has played a critical role in helping fight poverty and catalyze economic growth across Latin America.

Across the region, MCC has invested more than $1 billion in five-year compact agreements designed to address the binding constraints to investment and economic growth that are prioritized by our partner countries. MCC’s investments include infrastructure – like roads, bridges, ports – electricity, education, public services and agricultural production—sectors that enable long-term growth, reduce poverty and spur private investment.

MCC has invested another $150 million in threshold programs in the region—smaller grants awarded to countries that may not qualify for compact funding but are firmly committed to improving policy performance.
