Project scope and objective

The proposed financing consists of a senior loan to six of the main companies in the food division of Corporación Multi Inversiones ("CMI Alimentos") to ensure their short- and medium-term liquidity in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, which will cover their working capital needs in 2020 and any fixed investments required for 2021. The proposed transaction is for up to US$75 million, of which US$50 million will be financed with funds from IDB Invest and US$25 million from the Chinese Co-financing Fund for Latin America administered by the IDB, with a 5-year term, including a one-year grace period.



CMI Alimentos is one of the main foods and agribusiness economic groups in Central America, with operations in nine countries and almost 30,000 employees. CMI Alimentos' economic activities include the production of poultry, swine, and pork products, the production of wheat flour, corn, pasta, and cookies, and the operation of fast-food restaurants.
