Financial Inclusion Ambassador

In June 2016, during the annual conference organized by Microfinance Center took place the award ceremony of the financial inclusion advocates in Europe.

What does financial inclusion really mean?

It is about being included, not excluded. Having access, an ability to use financial services if and when needed. To whom? These financial services must be delivered to those who are not able to receive a lending facility from the traditional institutions, being in disadvantage due to the low incomes or not having the necessary documents to prove their incomes. Nevertheless, this category wants to grow and develop their economic activity.

In this context, good.bee Credit IFN was acknowledged as Financial Inclusion Ambassador in Europe, for active involvement in celebrating the Microfinance Day (20th of October 2015) and also for the innovative product offer with benefits tailor-made for each entrepreneur.

 

 

This initiative has received financial support from the  European Union Programme for Employment and Social Innovation - EaSI.
