Published by IFCpublications
The "Telling Our Story" series puts a human face on IFC's work, featuring short profiles of leading projects and the people whose lives they improve. This issue, "Frontier Focus: IFC in the World's Poorest Countries," shows how IFC helps the private sector expand its reach and improve people's lives. Examples include improving access to health, upgrading infrastructure, and providing financing for smaller businesses. (April 2008)
