Microfinance for Youth Entrepreneurship Campaign 2024

Microfinance for Youth Entrepreneurship Campaign 2024

Join Microfinance for Youth Entrepreneurship Campaign and promote your organization! 

We believe that everyone should have equal opportunities to start their own businesses, and we want to empower Youth Entrepreneurs. MFC, along with the partners, is going to promote the role of the microfinance sector in supporting youth entrepreneurs, in addition to sharing success stories from our partners. 

MFC is expanding its reach by engaging with microfinance stakeholders and showcasing the vital role of microfinance in financing youth entrepreneurs.

According to the publication ‘Missing Entrepreneurs 2023’  about 40% of young people (15- 30 years old) in the EU indicated that they would prefer to be self-employed compared to working as an employee However, this entrepreneurial ambition does not always translate into business creation or working as self-employed. Despite increased support and investment in youth entrepreneurship, youth continue to face barriers in entrepreneurship, including a lack of entrepreneurship skills, limitations in building networks and difficulties accessing finance 

Your participation supports the recognition of microfinance in bridging the gap for youth entrepreneurs and building visibility for the sector.
