The official said that when Ivanka stepped up, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim had begun to talk about 'areas such as African development – areas that will benefit from the facility just announced by the World Bank.'
That facility, a women's entrepreneurship empowerment fund, was spearheaded by Ivanka and has grown to $300 million with the help of a $50 million U.S. donation.
