EIF Working Paper 2009/1 - Microfinance in Europe - A market overview

    Release date: 23 November 2009

In the extremely fragmented European economy and in the absence of a commonly accepted microfinance business model, this EIF Working Paper confirms the positive impact of microcredit in both Western and Eastern Europe, analyzing aspects of social inclusion, job creation and market gaps.

EIF Working Papers edited by EIF´s Research & Market Analysis (RMA) make available to a wider readership selected topics in relation to EIF´s business.

EIF Working Papers will typically be authored or co-authored by EIF staff and will usually be published in English and online (PDF) only.
