How we do it
A unique financing model

Through a unique financing model that combines grants of the regional and international donors with the lending capital of IsDB, we are able to provide concessional loans that don’t just address an immediate need but allow us to set in motion fundamental change for this generation and every generation to come

Our approach

Collaborating with member countries to ensure relevance and results

We believe the most effective way to lift people out of poverty is to empower countries to do so themselves. That is why we seek to break down the barriers that prevent individuals, organizations and governments in the lowest income countries from obtaining the resources they need to accomplish this goal.
