Project Objectives

L’Union des Institutions Mutualistes Communautaires d’Epargne et de Crédit (U-IMCEC) was founded in 2005. U-IMCEC strives to improve the income and well-being of families by providing access to appropriate financial services. This allows above all women and young micro-entrepreneurs in rural and suburban areas to develop their activities. U-IMCEC’s aim is to be recognised in the near future as a reference in agro-financing, offering diversified, adapted and innovative services. This is why it focuses on improving its products and services to align them better to the needs of its customers. BRS contributes to U-IMCEC’s ambition to specialise in agrofinance.
