CORDAID IN BRIEF
CORDAID believes in a world without poverty and exclusion. We strive for a just and sustainable society where every person counts. We stand for knowledge and talent sharing between North and South, between farmers and businesses, between activists and policymakers. Where poverty, conflict and exclusion divide societies, we connect people and communities. We stand for professionalism, expertise and solidarity across borders. We make a difference where it is most needed.
We do that where natural disasters strike, where conflicts tear up communities and where under development keep families in extreme poverty. In the Netherlands, we are known as CORDAID Memisa, CORDAID Menes in Nood, CORDAID Kinderstem and CORDAID Microkrediet. In Sierra Leone, we focus on four key areas of support – Health System Strengthening, Financial Inclusion, Security and Justice and Private Sector Development.
OUR PRIVATE SECTOR DEVELOPMENT SUPPORT
One of CORDAID’s key priorities for Sierra Leone is the development of the private sector and improving Financial Inclusion in fragile settings. Our primary vehicle to help support this sector is our Resilience Business Development Support (RBDS) and Cordaid Enterprise Academy program--an integrated business development accelerator program that works with a 75% focus on ‘Missing Middle’ SMEs in Sierra Leone to help them become primarily investment ready--but also attractive to investors as strategic partners. A secondary value added is when financial sector starts to gain confidence in the existence of viable businesses with the requisite systems and processes, collateral and potential to access the financing they, the financial institutions are tasked, but resistant to provide. We also implement a Financial Inclusion in three districts around Sierra Leone.
