Our primary goal is to actively participate in unlocking Africa’s potential by focusing primarily on those forgotten by current financing mechanisms : the informal sector, VSEs/SMEs, women, youth, and the climate.

As Responsible and Committed Investors, we primarily focus on key areas directly related to financial inclusion, financing for SMEs/VSEs, and sustainable development.

We structure our actions around values and ethical principles :

  • Inclusion
  • Impact
  • Intergenerational

  • Long-term perspective
  • Sustainability
  • Return on investment
  • Innovative and pragmatic solutions

Addressing the continent’s challenges with endogenous solutions and innovative financing mechanisms.

FinDiETou

On April 15, 2021, BICICI, ADVANS, and FinAfrique announced the launch of FinDiETou.com, a digital financial education platform in French and Dioula, a dialect frequently used in Ivory Coast.

Its digital platform is punctuated by Voice-Overs, visual illustrations, and touch targets, allowing illiterate or semi-literate individuals to learn autonomously.
