THE ESSENCE OF OUR WORK IN 2022
Together, we’ve supported thousands of vulnerable people, who are taking initiatives to extricate themselves from extreme insecurity. They’re really grasping the nettle!

Four strands in our work
Three bases for our projects
To meet the needs of the most vulnerable in a flexible and sustainable way, our work is focused on three fundamental bases.
We train our teams to set and evaluate their social and environmental objectives, so they can constantly adapt their services to the needs of the most vulnerable. In 2022, we helped MuriCasa (Senegal) define its vision, mission and theory of change. We have also boosted the PALMIS Eneji (Haiti) team in its ability to measure developments in the socio-economic profile of their beneficiaries. And we have supported the teams at Wakili (Guinea), ACE (Vietnam) and Munafa (Sierra Leone), in their understanding of the challenges of climate change for their beneficiaries and in creating an action plan.
INCUBATION AND EMPOWERMENT
We recruit and develop the skills of local teams to help them to build strong and sustainable local organisations, which can then support vulnerable people without our support. In 2022, we incubated 23 organisations and maintained links with 6 of the 10 that had already become independent.
The financial needs of these local organisations (grant, loan, capital) evolve as they are built (seed, development, growth, scale-up, empowerment). To respond and comply with French and local legislation, we have developed a comprehensive, robust ecosystem: the Fondation Entrepreneurs du Monde supplements resources in the form of donations, the Entrepreneurs du Monde endowment fund and the two SASs (Microfinance Solidaire and Investisseurs Solidaire) take on debt and capital to provide organizations with loan capital, working capital and their own capital.
