“Making Finance Work for Youth Now” – A Story from Burkina Faso

UNCDF YouthStart is engaging in a series of case studies dedicated to highlighting the achievements of youth who have benefited from the programme since its launch. After the case study series, YouthStart Team will share a new video to give all stakeholders a first-hand view of how the opportunity to access financial and non-financial services can be a contributing factor for youth empowerment. Below is a story of Ibrahim, a 27-year-old young man from Burkina Faso who saved money to launch his business. Watch the video here.
