The Business Innovation Facility (BIF) is a 5-year initiative funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID). BIF aims to improve the lives of the poor in three countries: Myanmar, Malawi and Nigeria.
BIF employs a ‘Market Systems Approach’. We aim for large-scale, sustainable change to make markets more inclusive for the poor people that engage in them as employees, producers and consumers.
BIF works primarily by supporting companies to innovate. We provide high quality consultancy services to help companies develop inclusive business models that are commercially viable and will enhance economic growth, create wealth, and reduce poverty.
In Myanmar, BIF focuses its work on three sectors: garments, tourism and bamboo.
