(Business in Cameroon) - In Cameroon, the UNHCR has launched a refugee empowerment programme aimed at funding income-generating activities initiated by refugees living in Cameroon. This programme plans to empower close to 2,500 refugees so that they can cater to their needs and families’.

It is backed by Crédit du Sahel, a microfinance institution well-established in Northern Cameroon.

To date, according to sources close to the programme, 15 community initiative groups (CIGs) have already received funding under this project in Yaoundé and Douala.

Let’s note that Cameroon hosts about 340,000 refugees on its territory. This contingent is mainly composed of Central Africans who have fled political instability in their country, and Nigerians who have left their villages due to abuses of Islamist sect Boko Haram.
