Agency for Private Enterprise Credit in Cameroon
Transparency and high-quality quality services
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.Download this project as a PDF
