The private sector can be a powerful growth engine in developing countries.

But achieving sustainable and inclusive economic growth requires effective interventions that address the underlying causes of poverty and generate systemic change. Leveraging our extensive network of international connections, Nathan’s experts develop and implement innovative processes and methodologies to identify and address market failures. The tools we use to generate holistic change are rooted in market systems thinking, and range from the making markets work for the poor (M4P) approach to the use of challenge funds. We collaborate with our clients to raise productivity, create jobs, and increase sales. The provision of insightful results measurement, monitoring, evaluation and learning services underlies all our work.
