Industry Results

Our leadership role in sustainable private sector development reflects a special advantage—the depth and breadth of expertise we have acquired over more than 50 years of helping emerging-market firms succeed and grow.

We provide our clients the right mix of capabilities to address their needs, delivering the best of what IFC has to offer.

Consumer & Social Services

IFC is the world’s largest multilateral investor in private healthcare and education. We work to increase access to high-quality healthcare and education while also supporting job-creating sectors such as tourism, retail, and property. We help improve standards of quality and efficiency, facilitate the exchange of best practices, and create jobs for skilled professionals. 

In addition to making direct investments in socially responsible companies, our role includes sharing industry knowledge and expertise, funding smaller companies, raising medical and education standards, and helping clients expand services to lower-income groups. 

In FY13, our new commitments in consumer and social services totaled about $1.6 billion, or nearly 9 percent of IFC’s commitments for our own account.
