IFC's Vision, Values, & Purpose
Our vision is that people should have the opportunity to escape poverty and improve their lives.
Our values are excellence, commitment, integrity, teamwork, and diversity.
Our purpose is to create opportunity for people to escape poverty and improve their lives by:
Mobilizing other sources of finance for private enterprise development
Promoting open and competitive markets in developing countries
Supporting companies and other private sector partners where there is a gap
Helping generate productive jobs and deliver essential services to the poor and the vulnerable
To achieve our purpose, IFC offers development-impact solutions through firm-level interventions (direct investments, advisory services, and the IFC Asset Management Company); by promoting global collective action; by strengthening governance and standard-setting; and through business-enabling-environment work.
IFC, as a member of the World Bank Group, shares its mission to reduce global poverty.
