Access to capital in Burundi

The Government of the Republic of Burundi, through the Ministry of Human Rights, Social Affairs and Gender, has a National Gender Policy of Burundi, 2012-2025. Among the eight challenges identified that affect the social, legal and economic situation of women and that limit the promotion of equity is the challenge of equal access and accessibility to resources and economic opportunities by women.

With this policy, women currently have access to factors of production, basic infrastructure, support services and financial resources as indicated in the National Gender Policy of Burundi, 2012-2025, especially in its results framework. . Some women's organizations and associations have been created precisely to facilitate women to have capital to start their business or increase their business. Other financial institutions have created specific products for women entrepreneurs.
