Project Experience


Feasibility Study for the Establishment of a Microfinance Institution, 2007


In 2007, LFS carried out a feasibility study for a greenfield microfinance institution (MFI) in Senegal. The mission to Senegal was carried out in February and March 2007. The feasibility study recommended to establish a MFI on the legal basis of an agreement ("convention cadre") with the Senegalese Ministry of Finance. The study also comprised a business plan.

Financial Sector Study, 2003

In 2003, KfW commissioned LFS and three independent experts to prepare a strategy for the Senegalese-German Development Cooperation. The objective was to identify main areas for future intervention, with the aim of alleviating the unemployment of urban youths. For this purpose, LFS conducted an in-depth analysis of the financial sector in Senegal. The results were used to identify a strategy for future Senegalese German development co-operation.
