CDC Group PLC
We are the world’s first development financial institution. We’ve been at the forefront of supporting companies that help poor countries grow for the last 70 years.
A development-focused mission is at the heart of what we do.
Our mission is to support the building of businesses throughout Africa and South Asia, to create jobs, and to make a lasting difference to people’s lives in some of the world’s poorest places.
We invest in Africa and South Asia because over 80 percent of the world’s poorest people live in these regions. We focus on investing in countries where the private sector is weak, jobs are scarce, and the investment climate is difficult, but particularly in sectors where growth leads to jobs. These sectors are financial services, infrastructure, health, manufacturing, food and agriculture, construction and real estate, and education.
