EaSI Technical Assistance for Microfinance entering a new phase

Building a more inclusive and fairer Union is a key priority for the European Commission, which has recognised the potential of microfinance and social enterprises to foster job creation, inclusive entrepreneurship and social inclusion.

The EaSI Technical Assistance for Microfinance programme supports microfinance institutions to build up their institutional capacity. These cover a range of activities:

EaSI Technical Assistance for Microfinance is subdivided into two lots:

Microfinance institutions that have signed up to the European Code of Good Conduct for Microcredit Provision as well as those that have been selected under a previous call for expression of interest for Technical Assistance can continue to benefit from the EaSI Technical Assistance services.

A new call for expression of interest is expected to be launched during the first quarter of 2019.

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact Frankfurt School of Finance & Management or MicroFinanza Rating.
