The main objective of the project M.I.C.R.O. – Ideas of migrants converted into real opportunities– is to promote microfinance as a tool for the eradication of poverty and the fight against social exclusion.
The project Ideas of Migrants Converted into Real Opportunities focuses on the training of technical personnel at European level for entrepreneurship and access to microcredits for immigrants in Europe. M.I.C.R.O. analyzes the situation of immigrants in Europe when starting a business. Among these difficulties are also the search for professionals to guide and support them in the development of their business initiative and the need to develop their business skills. On the other hand, the problem of access to financing will be addressed through the promotion of microfinance.
This European project involves entities from different European countries and work contexts that unite their work and experience to obtain:
- Increase capacity and professionalism to improve support for immigrants in the field of entrepreneurship and self-employment.
- Create professional training adapted to the specific needs of immigrants and make it accessible through a web platform.
- Promote microfinance as a tool to access credit for people in financial exclusion.
