Financial aid from developed nations has actually hindered development for third world nations.
You see this with Western charities saying "if you take our money, you cannot use DDT to kill mosquitoes though it is cheap and effective, use less effective and more costly environmentally friendly ones" or "we'll give you money but you have to buy food from American farmers to be shipped here instead of buying from local farmers who need the money more".
Another problem with Western aid was giving corrupt governments money they used to build fancy projects of limited value like stadiums and government buildings instead of power plants, water treatment plants and infrastructure people actually needed. This also encouraged them to maintain complex socialist bureaucracies though this hindered economic development among people least able to afford it.
