The investment training session is tailored to microfinance institutions and other stakeholders in the Portuguese microfinance sector.
The European Union is offering an investment readiness training under the EaSI Technical Assistance programme tailored to microfinance institutions and other stakeholders in the Portuguese microfinance sector. The training will take place at the SANA Metropolitan Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal on 11 March 2020.
This training will aim to prepare the Portuguese institutions for negotiations with the European Investment Fund to facilitate access to EU support under EaSI or EFSI financial instruments. It will focus on internal procedures for the microfinance institutions to comply with investor requirements.
The training will be moderated by Ms. Silke Müffelmann from Frankfurt School of Finance and Management. Mr. Kim Kreilgaard, from the European Investment Bank, will present the available EaSI and EFSI Financial Instruments targeting micro and social enterprises. In addition, Mr. Daniel Sorrosal from FEBEA, will provide a practitioner’s perspective in applying for the EU financial instruments.
The event organisers expect to welcome representatives from more than ten Portuguese institutions, such as microfinance institutions, banks and fintechs, interested in improving their operations and understanding better the expectations and standards of international financial institutions to improve their chances of receiving funding.
European microfinance providers, either selected as EaSI Technical Assistance beneficiaries or interested to apply for the programme can contact the organisers to receive more information about this event, as well as to request the participation in or organisation of similar events.
