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 a number of criteria. The project must:

 

* Be located in a developing country* that is a member of IFC;

* Be in the private sector;

* Be technically sound;

* Have good prospects of being profitable;

* Benefit the local economy; and

* Be environmentally and socially sound, satisfying IFC environmental and social standards as well as those of the host country.

 

IFC does not lend directly to micro, small, and medium enterprises or individual entrepreneurs, but many of our investment clients are financial intermediaries that on-lend to smaller businesses.

 

Investment Proposals: A company or entrepreneur seeking to establish a new venture or expand an existing enterprise can approach IFC directly by submitting an investment proposal.
