Innovations Against Poverty challenges the private sector to develop products, services and business models that can contribute to the fight against poverty, and climate protection.
Through our financial and non-financial services, we support innovative Inclusive Business models that deliver commercial benefits for the private sector and developmental benefits for the low-income population, while paying specific attention to gender equality and environmental sustainability.

IAP IN NUMBERS
Private sector development has proven to be a real catalyst of change when it comes to creating the opportunity for low income people to lift themselves out of poverty. Additionally, low income markets represent a large business opportunity: the four billion people living on less than $8 USD a day constitute a global consumer market with a shared purchasing power valued at 5 trillion USD. The low income population provides the potential to increase labour, supplier and distribution channels that can support expanded production and market supply.
