Introduction to collecting debt in Madagascar
Do you have trouble getting paid by your customers in Madagascar? Do not worry; we can help you get paid easily.
The person who owes the debt is called the debtor. The person who gave the debt is called the creditor. If the creditor collects the debt, it is first-party collection. If someone else collects the debt for the creditor, it is third-party collections.
The debt collection process in Madagascar
The debt collection process in Madagascar is typically conducted in multiple steps. The image below explains our standard process for collecting debt in Madagascar:
1 Upload your claim:
If you want someone else to help you get your money back, you will start by finding a debt collection partner. You will give them some information about the money you are owed, and they will try to get the money for you. Debitura can help you find a good debt collection partner. We will give you 3 quotes from local partners in the African country where the person who owes you money lives. This service is free - there is no catch.
2 Amicable collection:
The first step in collecting a debt is to send reminders to the person who owes you money. This can be done by email, text, letter, or any other way of communicating in the specific country. The goal is to get the debtor to pay or at least acknowledge the debt and start a payment plan. Debitura offers a solution where you only have to pay a small success fee if we are able to collect the debt. Amicable collections with Debitura are therefore 100% risk-free!
If the person you are owed money from has not paid you back after you have talked to them, it is time to decide what to do next. We will look at how much money you are owed, the chance of getting paid back, and other factors to help you decide what to do. There are three typical next steps:
If your claim is for an amount less than 2,000-5,000 euros, it is often not worth it to take any more legal action. In this case, we recommend "debt surveillance." This means that we will keep trying to contact the person you owe money to and try to reach a friendly agreement.
B: Legal collections:
We suggest beginning a legal action for bigger complaints. Exactly how it will be done depends on what you are claiming and how much you are claiming. Usually, it takes around 1-1.5 years to finish the process.It's like when you're in court, the judge and other people involved in the court case will want to know what you are complaining about and how much money you are asking for, and it takes a while to get the final decision.
C: Debt enforcement:
If the person you are owed money from has said they will pay you, or if there is a court order, you can go to the bailiff's court to get your money.
At Debitura, we can help you with all three steps in Madagascar.

Our analysis has shown that the risk of running a business in Madagascar is medium. Based on this medium score, we recommend being careful providing credit and considering charging upfront payment or using credit insurance when trading if you don't know the customer in Madagascar well. If possible, provide a short credit period or even better upfront payment. The average risk is conluded on the following areas:
The economic risk in Madagascar
Our analysis shows that the economic risk in Madagascar is very high (6 out of 6). An economic risk of 6 out of 6 is relatively high in Africa.
GDP and economic growth are critical drivers for economic risk.
The GDP of Madagascar is 14,64 bn. USD (2021), growing by 4,4% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Madagascar ranks #125 out of 183 countries and has a medium-sized economy.
Looking at the growth rate, it is ranked #92 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered an excellent growing economy.
GDP per capita is 515 USD, ranking Madagascar number #171 out of 183 countries. The result of this is purchasing power of citizens in Madagascar is low compared to the rest of the world.
You can see a more detailed picture of GDP and economic growth in Madagascar in the table below:
Another critical driver for the economic risk score is the inflation rate and the interest rates. You can see a more detailed picture of monetary KPIs in Madagascar in the table below:
The business environment risk in Madagascar
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Madagascar is high (5 out of 6), which is a pretty average risk score in Africa.
Economic freedom and rights determine the business environment risk in a country. You can see the critical facts for Madagascar in the table below:
In the above table, you can see, the property rights index is 46 in Madagascar, which is considered quite low in Africa.
The business freedom index is based on 10 indicators, using data from the World Bank’s Doing Business study. The Index is 47 in Madagascar, a quite low score for a country in Africa.
Madagascar's overall economic freedom index is 58 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Madagascar
The political risk in Madagascar is high, with a score of 5/6. This is a pretty average political risk score in Africa.
The governance and political stability indicators are important drivers for political risk. An overview of Madagascar can be seen in the table below:
The rule of law index analyses to which extent agents have confidence in and abide by the rules of society, in particular the quality of contract enforcement, property rights, the quality of the courts, and the police's ability to enforce court orders.
When transacting business in a country, the rule of law index is critical as it describes your ability to enforce commercial contracts.
In Madagascar, the rule of law index is at -0,87 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Madagascar has, therefore, a very low rule of law index, which means it is often close to impossible to enforce your contracts. We, therefore, recommend avoiding credits and recommend charging upfront payment instead.
Other drivers for the high political risks are the very weak control of corruption, the very weak political stability index, and the very large shadow economy that is 45,29% of Madagascar's GDP.
The commercial risk in Madagascar
In Madagascar, the commercial risk score is 1/4, which in our model is a very low score. This very low commercial risk score is low compared to the average in Africa.
The commercial risk is influenced by a country's international trade relationships. You can see some of the key facts for Madagascar in the table below:
Madagascar has a foreign exchange reserve of 2.33 bn. USD.
Madagascar has a negative trade balance of -7,7% of GDP. The meaning of this is that Madagascar imports more goods and services than the country exports.
The annual growth of exports of goods and services has been growing 11,65% annually - now 22,47% of GDP. Import of goods and services represents 30,16% of the GDP in Madagascar.
The financing risk in Madagascar
We have calculated the financing risk to be 2/4, which equals a low risk. A low financing risk score is relatively low for countries in Africa.
The country's banking system, efficiency, and stability influence the financing risk. You can find the critical facts for Madagascar in the table below:
In Madagascar, the credit information sharing index is 6 on a scale from 0 (low) to 8 (high). The result of this is accessibility and quality of credit information available in Madagascar is medium.
This makes it easy for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Madagascar. You should therefore be able to find a good local credit rating agency that can help you analyse the creditworthiness of your specific customers.
Your legal rights as a creditor (and as a borrower) are 2 out of 12 and, therefore, very weak.
The low financing risk for creditors also impacts the high interest rate in the private sector of 48,28%.
