CDC Group

CDC is the UK’s development finance institution, wholly owned by the UK Government’s Department for International Development. Founded in 1948, our mission is to support the building of businesses in Africa and South Asia, to create jobs and make a lasting difference to people’s lives in some of the world’s poorest places. We do this with a dual objective: to support growth and jobs that lift people out of poverty, and to make a financial return, which we reinvest into more businesses. In this way, we use our capital over and over again to help create the jobs and economic stability that will enable countries to leave poverty behind.
