Blending is a financing instrument that combines a non-reimbursable contribution from the European Union with reimbursable financing mobilized by COFIDES. This financing may be supplemented with contributions from other national and multilateral financial institutions, the private sector or the host country itself. For more information, please consult our Blending Brochure .

Companies can present a project to COFIDES once they have identified the country or region, the sector, the amount and the impact on the development of the project area. COFIDES, as an accredited entity, is the interlocutor between the EU and the company and is in charge of the whole process.
