IFC’s mission is to create opportunity for people to escape poverty and improve their lives, and we pursue it by investing in the private sector. At a fundamental level, it is the private sector that drives economic growth—a basic ingredient in poverty alleviation. At the same time, the private sector can expand access to goods, services, and livelihood opportunities for the poor, helping to ensure that growth is inclusive. IFC is particularly interested in investments with this dual rationale—investments in what we call inclusive business models.
