IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in developing countries. Our mission is to reduce poverty. We do so by providing financing to help businesses employ more people and supply essential services, by mobilizing capital from others, and by delivering advisory services to ensure sustainable development. In a time of global economic uncertainty, our new investments climbed to a record $20.4 billion in fiscal year 2012. These investments included nearly $5 billion mobilized from other investors.
