CDC reporting

CDC Group is the UK’s Development Finance Institution. Its mission is to support the building of businesses throughout Africa and South Asia, to create jobs and make a lasting difference to people’s lives in some of the world’s poorest places. Building on our brand rationale work, we created a dynamic annual review.
