In Ivory Coast, sharia-compliant banking currently accounts for a marginal share of the Ivorian financial sector. Recent estimates expect that Islamic financial assets in Ivory Coast could reach more soon.
Ivory Coast is preparing the legal framework for Islamic finance products such as the issuance of Islamic bonds (Sukuk) and in order to help financing Ivory Coast's SME it will promote Sukuk, Takaful (Islamic insurance) and halal microcredit.
Currently, Ivory Coast has a number of fully operational Islamic banks which serve retail and islamic corporate banking offering halal financing products such as Ijara, Ijara-wa-iqtina, Mudaraba, Murabaha and Musharaka.
