Some of the 5,000 residents of the Los Castanos de Choloma housing community in Honduras, which Inter-Mac International Inc. built with the support of OPIC financing. In 2014, OPIC awarded Inter-Mac an OPIC Impact Award in the Access to Finance category for the project, which not only provides safe and affordable housing for a low-income population, but also offers a path to home ownership.

 

OPIC is proud to recognize some of our outstanding partners with our 2015 OPIC Impact Awards for excellence in development. The awards, which will be presented on May 19, will highlight the important work OPIC clients are doing in emerging economies around the world.

OPIC-supported projects in health, education, agriculture, renewable energy, small and medium enterprise financing and other sectors are helping create jobs, improve lives and stimulate economic growth in critical development sectors. Impact Awards will be given in five categories including Innovation, Development Impact, Access to Finance, Renewable Resources and American Small Business.

Impact award winners were selected through a rigorous process that considered their focus in priority sectors or regions, innovation in overcoming difficulties, quality of results, risk mitigation practice, development impact and other factors, such as serving as a model in project development and execution.

The OPIC Impact Awards were launched in 2014 and these inaugural awards recognized eight clients working in regions from Iraq to Togo to Honduras.

We’re looking forward to honoring the winners on May 19 and sharing more details about each project in the coming weeks.
