Proparco - Creation of an Africa-wide financial training program

Context and need

Financing needs are a key issue for private sector development in Africa, which is PROPARCO's main area of intervention worldwide. Private Equity, Venture Capital and Private Credit, which are intended as levers for private sector development, are still marginally used or poorly adapted by the continent. In addition to its financial offering, PROPARCO therefore wishes to strengthen the skills and knowledge-sharing necessary for Africa to take ownership of these financing methods.


A 6-step methodology:

- Skills development

- Pedagogical innovation in construction and digital training

- Contextualizing content to Africa

- Sourcing, mobilizing and leading a community

- Continuous improvement and sustainability

- Impact


- 20 speakers from top funds/schools

- Animation/creation of an alumni network

- 50 participants from all over Africa per cohort for 6 months

- Certification of participants
