For Latin American and Caribbean countries working to reduce poverty and inequality, we help improve health and education, and advance infrastructure. With a history dating back to 1959, we are a leading source of development financing for the region. 

We don’t just lend though. We provide cutting-edge research, policy advice to inform decisions, and technical assistance to improve planning and implementation. 

Whether from our headquarters in Washington, D.C. from one of our 28 country offices, you can be a key connection to the people and countries we impact.
Our country offices play an essential role in identifying and preparing new projects, as well as executing and evaluating ongoing initiatives.  Our professionals in the countries facilitate close cooperation with partners and help drive impact first-hand.
