Development Impact

IFC channels investments toward private companies that bridge the digital divide by building modern communications infrastructure and information technology businesses. By making educational and commercial applications more widely available in developing countries, these investments give local populations access to the latest technologies, best practices and wider markets, and increase the efficiency of operations. Additionally, business opportunities in telecom, media and technology expand employment and contribute to higher living standards.
