Encouraging women's entrepreneurship through microfinance
BNP Paribas has been committed to financial inclusion for more than 30 years. By supporting Microfinance Institutions around the world, the Group is enabling disadvantaged populations that are excluded from the traditional banking system to benefit from financial products and services. Thanks to microfinance, micro-borrowers have the opportunity to carry out their projects. This is the case for Kani, who, thanks to the support of the French microfinance organisation Adie, was able to launch her organic cosmetics business project.
