In South Asia, IFC helps the private sector to create opportunity where it’s needed most—by supporting jobs, raising incomes, and expanding access to infrastructure and financial services.

We help boost sustainable economic growth—by supporting infrastructure building and improvements to logistics, expanding the use of renewable energy, promoting cleaner production, creating opportunities for smaller businesses, improving water and energy efficiency, and facilitating public-private partnerships.
