What role does finance play in international development?

Recently, there seems to be more and more organizations creating investment funds that support businesses developing countries trying to improve society. These are called impact investments. It is about combining financial goals and social goals. The point is to make money and create social impact, with the latter being the main focus of these investments. This type of investment style seems to make a lot more sense than simply making money. By supporting businesses that are creating positive change for society, everyone benefits. I think that's why the idea is also catching on in European countries as a result of the economic crisis. I am looking forward to hearing more about them.
