Understanding Our Development Impact

Measuring the results of our work lies at the heart of everything we do.

Our mission is to work with the private sector in developing countries to create markets and opportunities for all. To achieve this, we apply financial resources, technical expertise, global experience, and innovative thinking to address developmental challenges. Measuring our results is critical to understanding how well our strategy is working.

IFC is at the forefront of results measurement for private sector operations. We are one of the few international financial institutions that set corporate targets for direct development impact. This ensures that IFC and our clients are reaching the people and markets that most need our help.
