Complementarity Analysis Islamic Banks / Microfinance Institutions in Senegal

Main Article Content

Massamba Souleymane SECK


The purpose of this article is to assess the use of the complementary relationship between the Islamic Bank of Senegal and microfinance institutions in the SME financing process. Currently in Senegal, the constraints on the financing of SMEs are intensifying more and more and continue to limit state policies in the process of promoting sustained economic growth for lack of funding model that responds effectively to investment needs of the latter. In this perspective of marginalization of SMEs by traditional financial intermediaries’ especially traditional banks, the importance of using Islamic Bank / MFI complementarity could be a solution to such a situation of under-financing of SMEs. This new funding model can have a downward impact on transaction costs, reduce risk management and increase the medium- and long-term volume of credit available to SMEs. It would thus promote the financial and social inclusion of Senegalese SMEs. This new funding model can have a downward impact on transaction costs, reduce risk management and increase the medium- and long-term volume of credit available to SMEs. It would thus promote the financial and social inclusion of Senegalese SMEs.
