Our financing

Welcome to the "Our Financing" section of the Banque Ouest-Africaine de Développement (BOAD), where we reveal our commitment to the private sector and SMEs in West Africa.

Private Sector Support

Group of workers

BOAD is firmly committed to stimulating the private sector in West Africa. We believe that innovation, job creation and sustainable economic growth are intimately linked to the dynamism of private enterprise. In this way, we implement an intervention strategy tailored to the needs of the private sector, through direct and indirect support actions.

Soutien aux PME/PMI

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the driving force behind the region’s economy. We are firmly committed to supporting these key players by offering them easier access to financing. Our financial solutions for SMEs include dedicated credit lines, capacity-building programs and guarantee mechanisms to facilitate access to credit.
