BNP Paribas and microfinance: 25 years shared history

  • 18.08.2017

At BNP Paribas, we have made financial inclusion and social entrepreneurship key commitments in our corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy, in line with Sustainable Development Goals 1, 8 and 10. That’s why we grant loans to microfinance institutions, so that they in turn can offer microloans to disadvantaged populations who are excluded from the traditional banking system.

Committed for a long time into microfinance, BNP Paribas diversifies the initiatives through which its employees and clients can become involved by bringing a financial support or by providing their skills in the service of Microfinance Institutions, all around the world. Alain Lévy, Head of Microfinance and Social Entrepreneurship for America and Asia at BNP Paribas, presents to us the different levers for action implemented by the Group, as well as its principal operators.
