Investments in information and communications technology enhance economic activity and quality of life in the developing world by expanding access to healthcare, education, and food and making business more efficient and secure.

Affordable, reliable, and trusted technology is a powerful engine of prosperity and stability, yet many developing countries face a substantial digital divide due to the high costs of services and devices.

DFC's investments are also helping advance DFI collaboration on infrastructure development to bolster private sector investment in shared priority sectors including climate, health, gender equality, and digital connectivity.
