KfW Development Bank is involved in developing countries in order to promote the local economy and fight poverty. It carries out financial cooperation projects on behalf of the German government, focusing on sustainability through long-term programmes.
KfW Development Bank supports projects in developing and emerging countries in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, North Africa and the Middle East, and sub-Saharan Africa. With its funding, the bank aims to help its partners fight poverty, secure peace, protect the environment and shape globalisation in a fair way.
For more than 50 years, it has been supporting the German government in development policy and international cooperation. On behalf of the Federal Government, especially the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), KfW finances and supports programmes and projects with predominantly state actors in developing and emerging countries – from conception through implementation to performance review. The supported projects and programmes are proposed by the governments of the partner countries, based on their respective development strategies and structures. KfW Development Bank is accompanying the implementation of its projects with locations in Frankfurt, Berlin and Brussels and more than 70 country offices worldwide.
