We work in more than 100 nations, use our resources, knowledge, and clout to open up markets and opportunities in developing nations. IFC committed a record $32.8 billion to private businesses and financial institutions in developing nations during the fiscal year 2022, utilizing the private sector’s ability to promote shared prosperity and alleviate extreme poverty as economies deal with the effects of the world’s growing crises.
The World Bank Group, a partnership of five organizations working for long-term solutions to eradicate poverty and promote shared prosperity in developing nations, has 189 member nations, employees from more than 170 countries, and offices spread across more than 130 locations.
