DAI works on the frontlines of global development. Transforming ideas into action—action into impact. We are committed to shaping a more livable world. Since 1970, we have worked in more than 150 countries—delivering results across the spectrum of international development contexts, from stable societies and high-growth economies to challenging environments racked by political or military conflict. Our economic growth work brings together the right mix of industry dynamics to unleash broad and inclusive growth. Focusing on commercial sustainability, we work to improve domestic and global market access, forge links between companies, enhance workforce productivity, expand access to finance, and boost local value. Since 1985, DAI has been a leader in expanding financial inclusion, enterprise finance and mobilizing capital for development priorities around the world. Our proven track record extends across several clients—including the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the International Financial Corporation, the U.K. Department for International Development, World Bank, European Investment Bank, and the U.S. Agency for International Development—for whom we have led some of the most innovative financial services programs. Our financial services work typically complements DAI’s capacity in trade, competitiveness, and value chain development in sectors with potential for enhanced sales, job generation, and engagement of small producers and enterprises. Our work enables micro and small enterprises to address managerial, planning, marketing, and other limitations that constrain their ability to raise and absorb capital.
