Development Impact

Our clients have generated significant development impacts in the region. In Fiscal Year 2013, Our clients in the region supported nearly 680,000 jobs and helped educate about 900,000 students last year. In the financial sector, they provided nearly 15 million loans valued at about $82 billion to micro, small, and medium enterprises. 


Supporting smaller economies is a priority for us—we invested $1 billion in such economies in Central America and the Caribbean in FY13. We also invested more than $400 million in projects in the frontier regions of north and northeast Brazil and the Amazon.
