Research & Market Analysis (RMA) presents "Evaluating the impact of European microfinance.The foundations", n.33 of EIF's Working Paper Series.
To assess the effects of activities - the Impact Assessment – is an important topic for EIF and a focus area of EIF’s Research & Market Analysis. Analyses in the field of SME guarantees have already been published (see EIF Working Paper 2015/029), and corresponding work is underway in the area of Venture Capital. The present Working Paper - providing a detailed literature review and setting the framework for an approach for impact assessment in the field of microfinance - results from a project on the Impact of European Microfinance, initiated by EIF and funded by the EIB Institute.
The EIF Working Papers are designed to make available to a wider readership selected topics and studies in relation to EIF´s business. The Working Papers are edited by EIF´s Research & Market Analysis and are typically authored or co-authored by EIF staff or are written in cooperation with EIF. The Working Papers are usually available only in English and distributed only in electronic form (pdf).
