CrediAmigo : providing financial services for the poor in Northeast Brazil (Árabe)

Banco do Nordeste (BNB), a large public bank active in the Northeast of Brazil, established CrediAmigo in November 1997 with technical assistance from the World Bank. Given the strong commitment of BNB's senior management to develop a sustainable microfinance program, in May 2000, the World Bank provided a United States (U.S.) 50 million dollars loan to strengthen the CrediAmigo program. The project addresses poor people’s lack of access to formal financial services, an important constraint to improved productivity and incomes. CrediAmigo offers loans to established micro-entrepreneurs for the financing of their working capital and fixed asset needs. CrediAmigo also offers individual loans and investment loans, and is currently piloting a village banking model to serve rural clients.
