Proposal for a revised EU definition of microfinance and microcredit


The existing EU definition of microfinance i.e. the maximum amount of 25.000 € is not satisfactory as it does not recognize the specificities and the developments of the sector.

MFC and EMN joined forced and in consultation with their Members in 2017 worked out a new definition of microcredit and microfinance that helps to better identify potential beneficiaries of EU funding and support and justify the advocacy work towards policy makers.
