At the initiative of the Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation and Crédit Agricole S.A., Solidarity Bankers is a skills-sponsorship programme open to Crédit Agricole Group employees on behalf of the organisations supported by the Foundation.

A new Solidarity Bankers mission is to be filled in favour of Phakamani Foundation. Phakamani is a microfinance institution that empowers poor women to succeed in microenterprise. Its microentrepreneurial programme is inspired by the Grameen Bank. Its training, group lending and ongoing support system provides both empowerment and practical assistance for microenterprise development.

The institution serves over 35 000 active borrowers, all of them women living in rural areas, and manages a portfolio of €3.1 million. The Solidarity Banker will be responsible for supporting Phakamani Foundation in developing a framework and plan to improve risk management.
