The Foundation coordinates support programmes and technical assistance missions aimed at strengthening the operational functioning of the partners it finances.
The African Facility
The African Facility is a project developped in 2013 by the Grameen Credit Agricole Foundation, in pertnership with the French Development Agency (AFD), to support a larger number of rural microfinance institutions (MFIs), in Western and Eastern Africa. This scheme allows the Foundation to select beneficiary MFIs and provide them with funding according to more flexible criteria and procedures, especially in terms of portfolio size, risk, level of debt and operational self-sufficiency.
The financial inclusion of refugees
The Grameen Credit Agricole Foundation, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) have joined forces to develop a programme for promoting access to credit for refugees and host communities. The Foundation has been selected to manage the technical assistance and support its partner MFI to develop an offer of products and services suited to refugee needs.
