MICROFUTURE aims to improve the public policy framework concerning microfinance in the territories involved in the project. Microfinance, as an alternative to classic financing channels, offers new opportunities for the development of the labour market for micro-enterprises and the most vulnerable people. To be truly effective, however, it must respond to the major environmental, social and economic challenges of today: it is necessary to create an offer that is at the cutting edge, that has learned from the experience of the pandemic. To do this, the skills of public authorities and service providers must be increased by concretely changing models and patterns of action.
In the core phase, the project will be divided into 3 stages:
The follow-up phase will continue the exchange and development of partners' expertise at regional and interregional level, focusing on improvements already achieved and those not yet achieved to consolidate the microfinance system in each region.
