IFC - Creating Opportunities
IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, fosters sustainable growth in developing countries by financing private sector investment, mobilizing capital in the international financial markets, and providing advisory services to businesses and governments.
IFC helps companies and financial institutions in emerging markets create jobs, generate tax revenues, improve corporate governance and environmental performance, and contribute to their local communities. The goal is to improve lives, especially for the people who most need the benefits of growth.
Since its inception in 1956, IFC has proven each year that private investments, subject to the discipline of the marketplace, can result in profitable, sustainable business in developing countries. IFC measures the impact of its investments and advisory services and applies and shares lessons learned. Our deep involvement with the financial sector, including commercial banks in both industrialized and developing countries, allows us to catalyze three to four private sector dollars for every dollar we invest and multiply the impact of these investments.
Our vision is that people should have the opportunity to escape poverty and improve their lives. Our values are excellence, commitment, integrity, and teamwork. For more information, visit www.ifc.org.
