What is JASMINE?

JASMINE (Joint Action to Support Microfinance Institutions) was an EU programme managed by EIF in the period 2007-2013 to help non-bank microfinance institutions to scale up their operations and maximise the impact of microfinance products on microenterprises development and unemployment reduction within the European Union. JASMINE has been successfully implemented.  

Given the positive impact of JASMINE on the sector and its complementarity with existing and forthcoming EU microfinance programs such as financial instruments under the European Progress Microfinance Facility and the EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI), JASMINE has been extended in the framework of the 2014-2020 programming period. The initiative is integrated under the fi-compass advisory platform for financial instruments under the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) and microfinance under EaSI, which is implemented by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and funded by the European Commission. Read more details here
