EaSI TA Workshop in Albania Met Attendees’ Expectations

The EaSI Technical Assistance recent workshop, entitled “Applying for and Contracting EaSI Financial Instruments for Microfinance Institutions” was designed to help Albanian microfinance institutions learn what services are available under the EaSI Technical Assistance Programme and understand how to apply for them, as well as the EaSI Financial Instruments. The workshop took place in Tirana, Albania on 13 December 2018, and was sponsored by the European Commission and co-organized by the Albanian Microfinance Association

The event was comprised of three sessions:

  1. An overview of EaSI Financial Instruments and application requirements, presented by Simone Uccheddu, a European Investment Fund representative
  2. A case study highlighting useful information about the application process and contractual arrangements, delivered by Altin Muca, a BESA Fund representative
  3. A review of technical assistance services available to MFIs as part of the EaSI Technical Assistance Programme (add hyperlink), delivered by Grzegorz Galusek, MFC’s EaSI Technical Assistance expert.

The event proved both very interesting and useful for the attending participants, with one commenting:

“This event was well-organized and structured with relevant information and practical advice.”
