EaSI microfinance advice - Call for identification of beneficiaries

Under fi-compass, selected European microfinance providers can benefit from an institutional assessment or rating, to be followed by tailored trainings to increase the quality of their internal processes.

The EIB has launched its first Call for Expression of Interest to identify and select up to 30 European microcredit providers which will benefit from EaSI Technical Assistance starting in 2015. If you are a microcredit provider and you wish to apply to EaSI Technical Assistance, you should complete and submit an application as per template included in the Call. Applicants are selected on a “first come, first served” basis provided that selection conditions are met.
