iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE 2020

In February 2019, Entrepreneurs du Monde launched a new social microfinance programme in Sierra Leone called Munafa. It aims at “enabling marginalised micro-entrepreneurs to develop their income generating activity and improve their household’s standard of living through appropriate financial products and socio-economic services”. Today, Munafa runs 2 branches in Freetown’s slums and has 19 local employees and 1,738 beneficiaries. It targets the poorest communities and gives them access to financial services (non-secured loans, saving opportunities) and socio-economic services (financial literacy, group training sessions, social counselling).
