Setting up financial education training for UNACOOPEC cooperatives

Ivory Coast

Entrepreneurship

Project completed

Donors : UNCACOOPEC-CI

Duration : 7 months

Budget : 28 000 €

Context

In 2018, the agricultural sector contributed to approximately 19% of the GDP of Ivory Coast through a variety of activities carried out by the Ivorian population. The financing of agricultural activities is therefore becoming an essential factor in the reduction of poverty and the development of the Ivorian economy. Loan repayment is a major challenge for financial institutions in this sector.

Goals

Help the members of UNACOOPEC-CI cooperatives to increase their financial capacity, so that they can effectively repay their loans, and to facilitate their banking by opening an operations account.

Beneficiaries

  • 17 cooperatives assessed and trained
  • 1,028 producers trained
  • 188 cooperative staff trained
