The International Retail Banking (BPI) of Crédit Agricole joined forces with the Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation in 2017, by developing a partnership for its two banks in the Mediterranean basin, Crédit Agricole Egypt and Crédit du Maroc.
The BPI and these two institutions pay particular attention to promoting inclusive finance in their territories, as part of their CSR strategy. The Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation brings its expertise in the development of the microfinance sector.
In Egypt and Morocco, the recognized expertise of the Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation has enabled us to offer innovative solutions for funding microfinance institutions, which position us distinctly on the market. They fully support our values of proximity, utility in the territory, ethical and responsible finance. This allows us to generate a positive social impact, while promoting a profitable economic model.
We hope that this partnership model will also be implemented in Serbia. Other countries are under study.
