DEG | Land Portal


Working languages: 

For 55 years DEG, a subsidiary of KfW, has been a reliable partner to private-sector companies operating in developing and emerging countries. We provide them with long-term financing and promotional programmes, and advise them as they implement their investments. They can thus develop successfully and sustainably, while generating local added value and creating qualified jobs. As a development finance institution, we deliberately enter difficult markets as well, and promote private sector expansion there.

We develop solutions for our customers

We provide companies with long-term investment capital in the form of loans or equity, which is often difficult to obtain in developing countries. We advise and accompany our customers continuously to help them design their investment and company professionally, efficiently and sustainably. Our “Business Support Services” and range of promotional programmes also contribute to lasting entrepreneurial success.

Our customers are

  • companies from industry, agriculture and services;
  • private infrastructure companies in the energy, transport, utilities and telecommunications sectors;
  • financial institutions and funds that provide small and medium-sized enterprises, in particular, with reliable access to debt and equity financing.

Our customers are based in developing and emerging countries, Germany and other industrialised nations.
