There was also an increase in the number of female-owned MSEs from 4,573 to 20,536 from June 2012 to June 2013 as a result of the project.

The legal, regulatory and institutional framework for the Mortgage Finance Subsidies Program was strengthened, and the institutional framework to enhance transparency put in place.
Labor Intensive Public Works Program: The project reached more than 3,000 beneficiaries of which 67% were female, 80% came from Upper Egypt, and 82% were youth. Furthermore, in order to expand social protection for the most vulnerable, a World Bank multi-sector team provided technical advice to the government on subsidy reform and cash transfers and supported the establishment of an inter-ministerial Technical Working Group to design a cash transfer program.
Energy projects: The Bank made substantial progress in expanding generation capacity. The fast track power generation program (2,100MW) was one of the main drivers for bringing installed capacity to a total of 29,000 MW. From FY06 to FY13, the World Bank supported four gas-fired generation plants El Tebbin , Ain Sokhna, Giza North and Helwan South) and supported a program of renewables. The Natural Gas Connections Project has successfully financed gas connection to more than 365,637 households representing 15% of connected households in Cairo and Giza governorates. The project has connected more than 90,000 low income households to the gas distribution network and created more than 3,000 jobs, mainly in network installation and maintenance
Water and irrigation projects: There have been improved irrigation and drainage services to 190,112 farmers. Also, Bank support in irrigation has yielded results of more beneficiary participation. Moreover, the World Bank helped establish 9,800 water user associations, and successfully completed the first wastewater pilot project of this sort in Egypt. More than 40,000 farmers are benefiting from improved wastewater collection and treatment services.
Transport projects: The World Bank supports the rehabilitation and expansion of an existing terminal (Terminal 2) at Cairo airport thus significantly improving airport capacity. The Bank is also contributing to the modernization of railway signals between Alexandria and Assiut.
Investment support: The Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency reinsured the United States Overseas Private Investment Corporation’s coverage of Apache Corporation’s investments in its subsidiaries in Egypt.
 In a recent review, IEG rated, the El Tebbin project Marginally Unsatisfactory. The Bank recommended a Marginally Satisfactory rating because of efficient operation of the plant prior to a fire incident and the ongoing successful efforts at repair. Moreover two of the three TA components which would lead to improving energy efficiency of the industrial sector, would translate into financial benefits for Egypt's power sector.
