Encart n° 8: FONDS EUROPEEN DE FINANCEMENT SOLIDAIRE


POUR L’AFRIQUE - EUROPEAN SOLIDARITY FINANCING FUND
FOR AFRICA (FEFISOL)

In association with three European social investors that work in the sou-
thern countries, namely ALTERFIN/Belgium, ETIMOS/Italy and the Fun-
dacio UnSolMon/Spain, and within the framework of the “Financing
Towards the South” group of FEBEA (European Federation of Ethical
and Alternative Banks), SIDI has decided to set up a European invest-
ment fund with a view to reinforcing its actions in Africa and in favour
of the financing of the rural world.
The four organisations share the same vision and have been working in
collaboration with one another for years. The project to create FEFISOL
has been driven by the desire of these four actors to reinforce the com-
plementarities and synergies that have already been developed and to
achieve significant financial leverage for their partners.
The fund’s strategy, which is based on the experience of its founders,
consists in providing support for the structures that are being developed
and consolidated in Africa and in favour of the financing of the rural
world.
This approach is justified by the fact that the African microfinance mar-
ket has a huge potential since so few people have access to traditional
banking facilities. Indeed, Africa continues to be the most poorly served
continent in terms of foreign investment in microfinance.
FEFISOL also wishes to stand out from the commercial microfinance in-
vestment funds that concentrate on the most mature and profitable
structures in the sector, by essentially focussing its interventions on the
provision of loans and guarantees, as well as participation within insti-
tutions that have a mission to provide financial services to the micro-
entrepreneurs and producers’ organisations that are excluded from the
traditional banking systems, as well as the producers’ organisations
whose activities are, for the most part, aimed at the export market (no-
tably through their membership of fair and/or organic trade networks).
Contrary to the current tendency, 80% of FEFISOL’s portfolio will be held
in local currencies. This will serve to protect the financed partners from
exchange rate risks.
