DEG Representative Office Lima
The Andean region is rich in natural resources and has a considerable economic potential. Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru are members of CAN, the Andean Community of Nations, America's third largest integration region after Nafta and Mercosur.
Already since the mid-1980s, DEG has been active in this region and the current portfolio is about 490 million euros. Investments in the areas of manufacturing industries, in the finance sector - especially refinancings for the SME business and housing financing - and agriculture have been co-financed. Another emphasis is on infrastructure financings, for example for energy supply with a focus on the use of renewable energies.
