Microfinance in Côte d’Ivoire


With commercial banks focusing primarily on companies, large parts of the population are dependent on microfinance. The sector is dominated by cooperatives or mutual institutions, operating essentially in urban areas in the south and eastern part of the country; yet in recent years microfinance institutions have started to explore opportunities in rural areas. The rural regions are of great importance to the economic and social development of the country as its resources are mostly linked to the agriculture sector, which represents nearly 18 percent of the national GDP and employs roughly two-thirds of the population.
