Première Agence de Microfinance Burkina Faso - 2012 Report
Established in 2006, the Première Agence de Microfinance (PAMF) Burkina Faso operates through five branches located in the centre and the south of the country. PAMF disburses 90 percent of its loans from its four rural branches providing loans primarily for agricultural production, livestock, and storage and trading of agricultural produce. It offers group loans with bullet repayment, which is well-suited to the needs of rural clients.
