PAMPEJ is an operation designed to consolidate the achievements of the Microfinance Operator Capacity Building Project (PRECAMF) completed in December 2014, and contribute to the implementation of the national strategies for the promotion of microfinance and micro and small enterprises. It aims to support the Government's efforts focused on capacity building and professionalization of Micro-Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (MSE) promoters, and facilitating their access to long-term financing sources. This project, which will be implemented over a period of 4 years, was initiated following the PRECAMF completion mission, which conclusions stressed the need to consolidate all the capital acquired since the support provided to the project's implementation has failed to fully achieve the expected impact in terms of: i) productive, technical and operational capacities of MSEs and (ii) Microfinance Institutions'capacity (MFIS) to meet financial service needs. The intervention proposed for this support revolves around the following three components: (I) support for entrepreneurship and job creation; (ii) operationalization of the Microfinance Refinancing Fund (FOREMI) and support to MFIS and (iii) project management.
The PAMPEJ overall goal is to contribute to poverty reduction in Mauritania through MSE promotion, women's and youth entrepreneurship and job creation. The project's specific objectives are: (i) to promote MSEs that are sustainably profitable and (ii) to ensure a sustainable supply of inclusive financial services.
The project will directly benefit nearly 200,000 beneficiaries, e.i. approximately 6% of the country's population. The project will also benefit Micro-Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSEs), and Micro-Small and Medium Industries (MPIs), decentralized structures of the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Ministry of Social Affairs.
