In a further step, as of 24 July 2020, the EIF is also providing enhanced terms and conditions for guarantees and counter-guarantees under the EaSI Guarantee Instrument to further support financial intermediaries in providing financing to micro-borrowers, micro-enterprises and social enterprises affected by the crisis.

Information for financial intermediaries

A dedicated EIF Covid Infobox has been created for financial intermediaries to centralise any questions related to the EIF’s covid-19 response measures: covid-fi(at)eif.org

Calls for loan portfolio guarantees to intermediaries under EU programmes COSME LGF and InnovFin SMEG and EaSI GFI are published on our website. The EIF guarantees are supported by the EU budget under the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI).
