News from SIDI’s partners in the context of the health crisis

In this very special autumn, the latest issue of the SIDI Notebook takes stock of the situation of two partner organizations coping with the effects of the Covid-19 crisis.

In Central America, the restrictions imposed by the epidemic have had a major impact on the microfinance sector. The refinancing institution SICSA, which provides financial support to 37 MFIs in 6 Central American countries, found itself facing a liquidity risk. Faced with this situation, SIDI has relaxed its loan rescheduling arrangements to enable SICSA to continue to carry out its financial inclusion mission in the region.

You can also read an interview with the General Manager of the CAURIE Microfinance MFI in Senegal, who explains the measures taken from the very start of the Covid-19 epidemic, both for employees and customers.

In this issue, you’ll also discover the support projects carried out thanks to the ACTES Foundation, under the aegis of the Terre Solidaire Foundation, to help our partner organizations in the greatest difficulty to adapt their activities to new sanitary requirements.

Enjoy your reading!
