IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is the largest global
development institution focused exclusively on leveraging
the power of the private sector to tackle the world’s most
pressing development challenges. Working with private
enterprises in more than 100 countries, IFC uses its capital,
expertise and influence to help eliminate extreme poverty
and promote shared prosperity.
ABOUT THE CASE STUDY
Expanding access to quality and affordable education is
a central element to eliminating extreme poverty and
promoting shared prosperity. In developing countries, private
education providers play a critical role in the delivery of
education, skills, and training that is affordable and relevant
to the needs of the labor markets.
IFC’s focus on inclusive business looks specifically at
companies that expand access to goods, services, and
income-generating opportunities for people living at the
base of the pyramid. By combining purpose with profit,
inclusive businesses redefine business-as-usual.
IFC’s education and inclusive business practices jointly
develop case studies that highlight success stories in
education related to scale, skills, and affordability and to
reaching those who are under-served.
