Sectors & Expertise

IFC advances economic development and improves the lives of people by encouraging the growth of the private sector in developing countries. We apply our financial resources, technical expertise, global experience, and innovative thinking to help our partners overcome financial, operational, and other challenges.

We achieve this by investing in impactful projects, mobilizing other investors, and sharing expertise. In doing so, we create jobs and raise living standards, especially for the poor and vulnerable. 

Our work supports the World Bank Group’s twin goals of ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity.
