The sons of Bélèdougou launched a consortium last Saturday at the Palais de la Culture Amadou Hampaté Bah with a view to opening a savings bank in Kolokani.
According to Mrs. Coulibaly Fatoumata, director of studies at the Bceao, “it has been proven that the microfinance system contributes a lot to the fight against poverty, that it promotes financial inclusion with its easy access to customers”.
There are 125 microfinance structures in our country. But with the consolidation process undertaken by the State in 2015, several funds were closed for non-compliance and lack of activity.
The main objective is to fight against poverty in Bélédougou. For Bandjougou Fofana, prosecutor of Commune V, president of Kôfilonton: “With three partner associations, we decided to set up a savings and credit union with the aim of promoting financial inclusion and fighting poverty in our community. This whole process was materialized by the signing of a memorandum of understanding. This is in the interest of all Bélèdougou”.
