Faible financement bancaire dans la zone uemoa : une analyse des causes de ce mal récurrent
[Low financing in the waemu zone: an analysis of the causes of this disease recurring]
AbstractIn this working paper, we analyze the causes of under bank financing in the WAEMU (West African economic and monetary union) zone is characterized by yet quasi-permanent bank liquidity and a stable currency (the CFA franc) with unlimited convertibility guaranteed by France. We have identified several factors that explain this phenomenon among which we can mention: the low banking penetration, the importance of the informal financial sector, the limited scope of monetary policy. One important outcome of this study is that a flexible monetary policy (inflation for a little more economic growth) could facilitate the access of entrepreneurs and private to banking services.
