The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, invested $22 billion in developing countries’ private companies during fiscal year (FY) 2019/2020.

The corporation’s support to Egypt included a loan of up to $100 million in July to increase support to individuals and companies whose cash flows have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
