IFC and our clients make a wide range of contributions in developing countries. Our clients' success can have ripple effects across an economy, giving many people, including the poor, a chance to better their lives.
IFC investees benefit employees and their families, local communities, suppliers, investors, and the customers who buy what they produce. They generate significant tax revenues for national and local governments—resources available for assisting the poor. They can use IFC's support to expand or upgrade their facilities, improve environmental performance, strengthen corporate governance, and improve their management systems and adherence to industry standards.
