With 189 member countries, the World Bank Group is a unique global partnership fighting poverty worldwide through sustainable solutions. The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. They provide low-interest loans, zero to low-interest credits, and grants to developing countries. These support a wide array of investments in such areas as education, health, public administration, infrastructure, financial and private sector development, agriculture, and environmental and natural resource management. They also offer support to developing countries through policy advice, research and analysis, and technical assistance. Their analytical work often underpins World Bank financing and helps inform developing countries’ own investments.
