As a part of the World Bank Group, IFC is the biggest international development organization that concentrates on the private sector in developing nations. We operate in more than 100 nations, generating markets and opportunities in emerging nations with the use of our resources, knowledge, and clout. As economies struggle with the effects of global mounting crises, the IFC committed a record $43.7 billion to private businesses and financial institutions in developing nations in fiscal year 2023. This move highlights the capacity of the private sector to alleviate extreme poverty and promote shared prosperity. Go to to find out more.

The goal of the IFC 3.0 strategy is to increase investment activity in developing markets, particularly in fragile and conflict-affected states (FCS) and low-income countries (LICs). This approach works “upstream” to develop and design possible investment projects as well as to construct, deepen, and grow markets in order to open up new chances for private investments in riskier areas and markets. A new strategy for business development, deal sourcing, and client support is needed to achieve these growth and impact goals at scale. This strategy focuses on the following: i) expanding the product offering to engage opportunities earlier in the project cycle; ii) increasing the focus on preparing clients in emerging markets and sectors for investment; iii) increasing the attention on value addition and risk management of portfolio investment clients.

IFC is looking for an Investment Officer to join the Manufacturing, Agribusiness, and Services department at the IFC Office in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, or Kigali, Rwanda, to lead this strategy. Supporting the IFC’s endeavors to facilitate investment opportunities, improve investment outcomes, and improve investment conditions in the Eastern Africa region’s agribusiness sector will be the responsibility of the Investment Officer.

To support IFC’s strategy and business objectives, the investment officer will collaborate closely with the institution’s country, regional, investment, upstream, and advisory teams.

  • Support the creation and deployment of scalable platforms and solutions that can be duplicated in many African markets.
  • Recognize business models, trends, and technology; create creative solutions to satisfy customer and market demands.
  • Oversee client projects from start to finish by a) keeping a close eye on the project’s finances, b) hiring consultants efficiently, and c) supplying information for tracking and reporting to guarantee that results are met in line with the project’s approved business and M&E targets.
