Development impacts

  • Local economic growth

    The growth in loan portfolio will be fully directed towards small MSME’s with an average loan amount of EUR 4.4k.

  • Private sector consolidation/innovation

    The growth in loan portfolio will be fully directed towards small MSME’s with an average loan amount of EUR 4.4k.

  • Financial inclusion

    Inclusive growth is very high on the Ivorian government’s agenda and listed as one of its top priorities according to the IMF. Advans deliberately focuses on segments which suffer from a lack of market coverage.
    Advans’ mission is to provide access to financial services for underserved individuals and micro-enterprises.

  • Food security & rural development

    Advans aims to approach specific underserved niches in the market (such as agriculture) and designs its products to become attractive to those prospects, which are usually hard to reach.
