Fighting poverty with sustainable investments!
90% of all jobs in developing countries are created in the private sector, and a job is the single most important factor in elevating people out of poverty. One person with a job supports five to seven people on average.
We are Sweden's development finance institution. Our method is to make sustainable investments that creates jobs and increases the availability of important products and services, such as electricity and healthcare in developing countries, while also focusing on reaching small and medium-sized companies.
In order to achieve our goal - a world without poverty - more jobs with decent working conditions are required in the private sector.
