About Employer - IFC of the World Bank Group in Washington DC
The International Finance Corporation (IFC) is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in developing countries.
IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, advances economic development and improves the lives of people by encouraging the growth of the private sector in developing countries.
IFC was founded in 1956 on a bold idea: that the private sector has the potential to transform developing countries. Since then we’ve expanded to more than 100 countries, coining the term “emerging markets” and pioneering new markets such as sustainable bonds.
We achieve this by creating new markets, mobilizing other investors, and sharing expertise. In doing so, we create jobs and raise living standards, especially for the poor and vulnerable. Our work supports the World Bank Group’s twin goals of ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity.
