Agency for Private Enterprise Credit in Cameroon - Transparency and high-quality quality services

Agency for Private Enterprise Credit in Cameroon

Transparency and high-quality quality services

Cameroon

The Agency for Private Enterprise Credit in Cameroon (ACEP Cameroon) is a leading regulated microfinance institution (MFI) providing financial services to around 10,000 micro and small entrepreneurs through a network of 10 branches across Cameroon. ACEP Cameroun started off in 1999 as a government initiative co-funded by international donors.

ACEP Cameroon targets small businesses and micro-entrepreneurs with limited technical means and financial literacy, such as traders, carpenters, mechanics and farmers. This group is excluded from the traditional financial sector due to a lack of guarantees required by banks.

ACEP Cameroon offers them small loans with a strong focus on transparency, cautious procedures and excellent services. Among other initiatives, ACEP Cameroon has launched an agricultural loan product.

ACEP Cameroon has been an Oikocredit partner since 2012.
