Amundi, through its solidarity savings funds, invests on behalf of its clients in unlisted, innovative, growing companies with a positive social and environmental impact. This new investment enables Laiterie du Berger, a key player in the dairy sector, to develop and strengthen the resilience of the dairy sector in Senegal.
This investment has been carried out alongside the Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation, a partner of Laiterie du Berger since 2010 and in which it holds 11.5% capital stake. An international stakeholder in inclusive finance or microfinance services, the Foundation works with a network of nearly 70 microfinance institutions and social companies in some 30 countries, mainly in rural areas. It is through this network that the Foundation contributes to social inclusion by the financing of income-generating activities.
