WHO IS OUR CLIENT
Fin'Elle, La Finance pour Elle, is a young microfinance institution founded in 2007 and based in Cote d'Ivoire, whose mission is to create added value for women entrepreneurship and participate sustainably in their financial and social emancipation.
The project will support Fin'Elle in the creation of an ecosystem favourable to the emergence of female entrepreneurship in agricultural value chains and to be the reference FI for women entrepreneurs in Cote d'Ivoire.
WHY WE FUND THIS PROJECT
FMO supports this project as it offers the development of sustainable alternatives for inclusive finance and gender-smart solutions for women entrepreneurs. It is expected the project will contribute to the identification of good practices in the sector that could be shared with the rest of the Cofina Group and FMO clients with similar ambitions.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF FMO
Communities who believe they will be negatively affected by a project funded by the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) may be able to file a complaint with the Independent Complaints Mechanism, which is the joint independent accountability mechanism of the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) and the German Investment Corporation (KfW). A complaint can be filed in writing, by email, post, or online. The complaint can be filed in English or any other language of the complainant. The Independent Complaints Mechanism is comprised of a three-member Independent Expert Panel and it can provide either problem-solving, compliance review or both, in either order. Additional information about this accountability mechanism, including a guide and template for filing a complaint, can be found at: https://www.fmo.nl/independent-complaints-mechanism
