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, "Upside in Emerging Markets," focuses on how IFC is creating opportunity where it's needed most. The stories show how we are helping African exporters bring their goods to market, developing new sources of electricity for villages in the remote mountains of Central Asia, building a sound local bank for the Palestinian people, and addressing other important challenges. (October 2009)
