With a series of initiatives called the Africa Program, SACE has expanded its operations in the sub-Saharan region to allow companies and banks to invest safely in an area that is growing but still subject to high risks. The "institutional mission" is to strengthen the system of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) through the development of operational strategies that allow for better insurance coverage of the risk.
