IFC Development Results and Impact

IFC Development Results and Impact 
In FY 13,  IFC provided a record of nearly $25 billion in financing for private sector development, $6.5 billion of which was mobilized from investment partners.
In FY13 IFC invested about $580 million in fragile and conflict affected areas. Our advisory expenditures in these areas totaled about $40 million.
Some 120,000 women in rural parts of northern India now have access to small loans and increased credit, thanks to a partnership between IFC and Utkarsh Micro Finance.
Job creation is central to ending poverty and boosting shared prosperity. Jobs, which are mainly created by the private sector, are a critical pathway out of poverty. In FY13, IFC clients provided 2.7million jobs and many more on their value chains.
IFC partners with local microfinance companies in Liberia to give loans spurring growth of local entrepreneurs.
