The World Bank is an international financial institution that provides loans to developing countries for capital programs. It consists of 188 country shareholding members. It’s lending to developing countries is primarily financed by selling of AAA-rated bonds in the world’s financial markets.

The World Bank could benefit significantly from proliferation of global branch banking locations, and specifically deposits from a vast and previously untapped market of customers.

Such an initiative would avail opportunity for some charitable giving or investment by the World Bank and set a precedence for other banks to follow as with hiring urban planners and economists to urbanize and maximize the potential of natural and other resources of developing/poor nations that may not otherwise be empowered to make the most of traditional loans.
