Overview

ADB also provides loans and grants from Special Funds, of which the Asian Development Fund is the largest. The Asian Development Fund offers loans at very low interest rates and grants that help reduce poverty in ADB's poorest borrowing countries.

In 2013, ADB’s operations totaled $21.02 billion, $14.38 billion financed by ADB and Special Funds and $6.64 billion by cofinancing partners.
