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 programs designed to address the binding constraints to investment and economic growth that are prioritized by our partner countries. MCC’s investments include projects focused on education, agricultural production and infrastructure – like roads, bridges, ports, and electricity – to 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.
