Microfinance and Social Economy Finance


Under this framework operation, the CEB will provide loans to financial institutions specialised in microfinance and social economy finance. Thanks to the InvestEU guarantee support, the CEB Framework Operation will help alleviating the key funding constraint by providing longer term and affordable loans and would thus contribute to addressing the market failures affecting the supply of finance to microenterprises and micro entrepreneurs as well as social economy organisations. Sub-projects will amount to at least EUR 3 million and at most EUR 50 million.
