The new project financed to GSI Italia by the Presidency of the Italian Council of Ministers for the South Ubangi region, in northern Congo near the equator, starts today. An economically important intervention, around 200 thousand euros, in an area of the country where tribal conflicts add to perennial poverty.

The launch mission of the project is currently being led by Floribert Avonyima and Fernand Violle, appointed by GSI Italia to organize the activities with the local partner association SAD RdC and prepare the representative of GSI Italia in Congo, Kasese Matondo, for the management of the project, who from our office in Kinshasa will manage for a year the project in Gemena, the capital of South Ubangi.

The action that GSI Italia is called upon to carry out is twofold: activate income generation processes through the instrument of micro financial credit and build a platform for social dialogue between the civil population, young people in particular, and the local authority represented by the Governor, expression of the central government of Kinshasa.

To prepare the Congolese staff for the management of the program, GSI Italia called Paul Bandre, a micro credit expert in Burkina Faso.
