Our reputation as a premium and respected brand within the markets in which we operate, makes us remarkably successful at local and international capital raising. We enjoy support from some of the largest development finance institutions across the globe as a result of our financial returns and social impact alike. Global finance and development agencies, such as IFC, OPIC, IDB and KfW, view us as a principal driver of financial inclusion across our countries of operation and therefore fund our growth. We are a principal contributor to the opening of debt capital markets across Africa and Latin America. Our listed programmes on five international stock exchanges consistently carry out some of the largest debt issuances in our countries of operation.
