Our collaboration with eFront has been very beneficial thanks to the team’s responsiveness and ability to adapt to our needs, particularly when it comes to change requests.

With the recognized potential to further increase efficiency across their other business activities, we are excited to see what our future collaboration with SOLIDIS will bring”.
SOLIDIS is a financial institution that was founded in 2008 at the initiative of ten business leaders from different sectors with an aim to contribute to the economic development of Madagascar through the promotion of entrepreneurship. To achieve this, SOLIDIS provides reliable financing and guarantee solutions by promoting access to bank financing for SME’s as well as financing for any individual or entity who has feasible and credible projects with high potential in strengthening their own equity; offers a guarantee to individuals to support real estate loans as an alternative to mortgages; and additionally, issues specific guarantees for commercial loans for activities such as construction contracts. In 2014, SOLIDIS was chosen to manage the Partial Portfolio Guarantee Fund (GPP), a program of the World Bank and the Malagasy State. SOLIDIS CAPITAL, a venture capital company, was launched in 2017 to further the company’s original mission.
