CARANA Corporation designs and implements inclusive economic development strategies for governments, businesses, and international donors. Since 1984, we have led more than 250 projects in 100 countries, lifting tens of thousands of people out of poverty through sustainable investment, policy reform, and job creation. We do this by forging market-led alliances with private and public partners to:
- bridge skills gaps,
- strengthen small enterprises and supply chains,
- widen access to finance,
- transfer technology to expand the availability of food as well as improve farmer resilience, and
- improve infrastructure, trade facilitation, and transport and logistics services.
All the while, we focus on the issues that most affect vulnerable groups, such as gender equity, youth employment, and environmental stewardship.
We are facilitators, leveraging successful partnerships and building local capacity to ensure sustainable social and economic change.
