CDC is the UK's development finance institution. CDC supports the building of businesses throughout Africa and South Asia, to create jobs and make a lasting difference to people's lives in some of the world's poorest places
CDC invests in Africa and South Asia because over 80 per cent of the world’s poor live in these regions. CDC focuses 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.
CDC has been investing in developing economies for nearly 70 years. During this time, CDC has pursued an evolving strategy for a changing world, establishing and backing a number of sector-leading businesses around the world. Two dual objectives have remained constant throughout this period – the need to generate reasonable financial returns while achieving lasting development impact.
