In 2015, Entrepreneurs du Monde conducted a study to identify the needs of the poorest population in this region. This study revealed the real need of this population is access to social micro-finance services. Entrepreneurs du Monde then decided to create a social microfinance structure called "Fansoto" which means "To make a living by the sweat of one's brow".




OBJECTIVE : Promote the socio-economic integration of vulnerable populations in rural areas

It's mission is to offer financial services (micro-credit, savings), support, and training, all of which allows vulnerable populations to carry out, with success, income-generation activities to foster their socio-economic liberation.

Maimouna Tendeng

"I am a member of a women's group and also a municipal councilor. I enjoy being useful to my community.

To make money, I also do poultry farming. I would like to receive support from Fansoto. At the moment, I do not have any equipment and I only have a henhouse. A micro-credit will allow me to have a bigger company and, thanks to the trainings, I will have the necessary knowledge to get there. "

To reach a large number of vulnerable people, Fansoto plans to start its activities nearly simultaneously in the peripheral districts of Ziguinchor and Bignona, before gradually spreading to the rest of Casamance.
