Evaluation of IDB Group's Work Through Financial Intermediaries

This line of work is important not only to IDBG, which provided FIs with $17 billion in approvals from 2005 to 2014, but also to a majority of development finance institutions (DFIs) that view these operations as a cost-effective way to reach smaller beneficiaries.
