The OPEC Fund provides financing through its Ordinary Capital Resources (OCR) and through a special fund – Special Capital Resources (SCR). Debt will be issued to fund operations from OCR only.
OCR are used primarily for lending to middle income countries, certain non SCR Less Developed Countries and to private sector borrowers in pursuit of social and economic development. The OPEC Fund has, to date, provided assistance in more than 125 countries worldwide through four core business areas:
- Public Sector Operations
- Private Sector Operations
- Trade Finance
Public Sector Operations are the core facility of the OPEC Fund and provide loans for financing development in a broad range of sectors to partner countries. These represent around 70% of OCR operations. Private Sector and Trade Finance Operations offers loans, guarantees and equity investments. All guarantees relate to trade finance transactions wherein the OPEC Fund guarantees the payment obligations of local confirming banks relating to their letter of credit issuances. Grants are provided to help build public goods, address the needs of disadvantaged populations in OPEC Fund partner countries (particularly in the least developed countries) and support technical assistance and capacity building activities. 90% of grant financing is to be used for project preparation in support of sovereign and non-sovereign lending operations.
The OPEC Fund has a long history of cofinancing with key partners in the development community and prides itself on its efficient business model allowing it to be nimble and agile in response to partner country needs.
