Microfinance and solidarity

Promoting innovation for solidarity


The Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation finances projects for people with no access to finance

The Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation was formed from a partnership between Crédit Agricole S.A and Grameen Trust. In line with the Crédit Agricole Group’s mutual banking roots, the foundation supports microfinance institutions that help poor people in rural areas to develop a business and escape from poverty. Since it was established in 2008, the foundation has also made a major contribution at community level through research and innovation in order to find solutions to development issues.

Supportive and true to its roots

The Crédit Agricole Group has never forgotten that mutual help lies at the very core of its existence, from the very first local bank, established on mutualist foundations more than a century ago, to today’s universal bank, which currently serves 51 million customers worldwide. Supporting solidarity is a permanent feature of the Crédit Agricole Group’s sponsorship activities, closely related to its own identity. The Group demonstrates this through its charity organisation, Crédit Agricole Solidarité et Développement, which implements Crédit Agricole S.A.’s and the Regional Bank’s aid projects in France and around the world. That same concern is evidenced in the support provided to organisations such as Dons Solidaires and Nos Quartiers ont des Talents, Amundi’s partnership with Action Against Hunger, Crédit Agricole CIB’s and the financial community’s support for the Telethon, Crédit Agricole Assurances’ work with the Associations d’Aide aux Aidants, Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance with the AIDS charity Sidaction, and many more initiatives.
