IFC and Private Sector Funding

The International Finance Corporation or IFC, is the private sector arm of the World Bank Group and shares its mission to reduce global poverty. To achieve their purpose, IFC offers development-impact solutions through firm-level interventions- direct investments, advisory services, and the IFC Asset Management Company. IFC coordinates its activities with the other institutions of the World Bank Group but is legally and financially independent.

IFC offers a wide variety of financial products for private sector projects in developing countries. To be eligible for IFC funding, a project must meet certain criteria.

A company or entrepreneur seeking to establish a new venture or expand an existing enterprise can approach IFC directly by submitting an investment proposal. After this initial contact and a preliminary review, IFC may proceed by requesting a detailed feasibility study or business plan to determine whether or not to appraise the project. IFC's project/investment cycle illustrates the stages a business idea goes through as it becomes an IFC-financed project.
