Small business development

Orabank is committed to participating in the financing and development of small private entrepreneurs.

We have a small business client base and three strategic priorities that have been set in terms of development assistance:
  1. SMEs: The Orabank Group supports eligible projects supported by small and medium-sized companies operating in the countries of operation.
  2. WOMEN AND YOUTH: Orabank supports the economic empowerment of women and youth.
  3. MICROFINANCE: Orabank, the French Development Agency and the European Union have created a Meso fi nance Cluster. The goal is to improve access to bank financing for small economic or social projects of very small enterprises, which predominantly operate in the informal sector and represent 98% of the economic fabric.
