The World Bank Group consists of five organizations: The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), which lends to governments of middle-income and creditworthy low-income countries; The International Development Association (IDA), which provides interest-free loans to the poorest countries; the International Finance Corporation (IFC), which is focused exclusively on the private sector; the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), which promotes foreign direct investment in developing countries to support economic growth and reduce poverty; and the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), which seeks to settle international investment disputes. The World Bank Group has two ambitious aims: to end extreme poverty within a generation and to boost shared prosperity.
