Feasibility Study for a Microfinance Intervention, 2008

In late 2008, IFC and BIO commissioned LFS to conduct a feasibility study for a microfinance intervention in Burundi. LFS conducted a mission to Burundi in January 2009. Based on the information and the data collected in the field and through desk study, LFS wrote a feasibility studie and developed a set of options for microfinance interventions in Burundi.

As an outcome of the feasibility study, we proposed a downscaling project with a local bank in the framework of IFC’s Africa MSME Finance Program.
