Impact. IFC in the Middle East and North Africa, FY2015

As a region, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is brimming with potential.But it faces several long-standing problems, like high unemployment (especially among youth), power shortages, and a lack of access to finance. Those issues have conspired to hold back economic growth in this region of 350 million.

Through a combination of investments and advisory services, we work with companies from Morocco to Pakistan helping to combat poverty and bring opportunity to those who need it most.
