It will provide countries, actors of entrepreneurial ecosystems and entrepreneurs with an offer of financial and technical support to finance entrepreneurship (including informal), businesses and private sector development. Choose Africa 2 will bring together three types of activities led by "l'Equipe France": ▪ Support for the private sector throughout the African continent, in line with the strategy of Proparco, a subsidiary of the AFD Group, adopted in 2022; ▪ An «entrepreneurship» mechanism, supported by the AFD group and Bpifrance, and dedicated to the creation or strengthening of public institutions with the mandate to support local entrepreneurship in several African countries, to make up for the lack of financing of entrepreneurship by the private financial market; ▪ Bpifrance will support French companies wishing to develop their activities in Africa.
