Investment practices and preferences of the Malian diaspora in their country of origin

Type of documentStudy

In 2020, formal remittance transfers alone accounted for 5.7 per cent of Mali’s GDP. These remittances support household consumption, economic and social development and the installation of basic infrastructure in areas of high emigration (largely rural areas).

This study provides food for thought for operators wishing to tailor their financial tools to the needs and expectations of the diaspora while stimulating the interest of public actors.

This report is based on a survey of the preferences of Malian diaspora members in France, Spain and Italy regarding productive and financial investment in Mali.
