DFC will continue to support Belize’s traditional sectors. The Corporation has secured a $20 million credit line from the European Investment Bank (EIB) for investment in the Productive Sector.

DFC has also applied for a $40 million Consolidated line of Credit from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) for investment in the Productive, Residential and Education Sectors.

Aware of the impacts of climate change on the Productive Sector, the Corporation is now aiming to be a pioneer in financing green technology. DFC has embarked on a Renewable Energy / Energy Efficiency (RE/EE) Pilot financing program in partnership with the CDB, the Ministry of Energy and the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) in its effort to begin mainstreaming climate resilience in its projects.

The Corporation is moving to ensure adequate financing for drainage and irrigation in agricultural projects. It is also moving to ensure that construction projects meet required building codes and integrate green technology for more efficient energy utilization, where possible.
