Where we work


UNCDF's activities in Cameroon include improving the accessibility of financial services to low-income populations in urban and rural areas.

Today, UNCDF offers catalytic finance models that unlock public and private resources in “last mile” environments, especially at the domestic level, to reduce poverty and support local economic development.

UNCDF is implementing two global programmes: MicroLead, a global initiative that works with a variety of financial institutions to develop, pilot and scale deposit services for low income, rural populations, particularly women; and CleanStart programme, which supports clean energy policy development, and provides risk capital and technical assistance to competitively selected financial service providers and energy enterprises at regional and national levels.
