Whether it is operating as a banker or a philanthropist, we are committed to fight poverty.

We have integrated to our CSR strategy the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. The BNP Paribas Group aims to help building a more sustainable world through actions with positive impact.



How are we fighting to end poverty worldwide?

By doing what we know best: financing the economy.
More specifically, by financing more than 30 microfinance institutions and microfinance funds up to €270 million in 2017, the BNP Paribas Group directly contributed to financial inclusion with around 300’000 microloan beneficiaries in 17 emerging countries, including Morocco, South Africa and Columbia. Here’s a short video on one microfinance success story in India.
