Development finance institution

A development finance institution is a specialised development bank, or subsidiary, established to support private sector development projects in developing countries.

They are usually majority-owned by national governments.

This ensures that they are highly creditworthy, enabling them to raise money in large amounts on competitive terms.

In turn, this allows them to provide finance on competitive terms to their customers.
