The “ATM for SMEs” project aimed at improving the access to microfinance in 8 European regions. During the 5 years of the project, the partners shared good practices how to make it easier for local micro enterprises to access microfinance and other business development services. Based on the lessons learnt, 8 local policies were updated and several local actions launched.
Peter Vonnak, project manager from FEA underlined: the project can not only benefit regional policies and instruments, but the lessons learnt can show the path non-profit microfinance should follow in order to leverage the potentials of microfinance and achieve the utmost social benefit.
