EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI)
Microfinance Ireland benefits from a guarantee issued under the EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI).
The EaSI Programme is funded by the European Commission and managed by the European Investment Fund.
This Guarantee Facility aims to increase availability and accessibility of microfinance loans for (i) vulnerable people who wish to start up or develop their own micro-enterprise and (ii) existing micro-enterprises that meet certain eligibility criteria.
Microfinance Ireland provides loans from €2,000 to €25,000 to both start ups and existing businesses that have less than 10 employees and annual turnover of less than €2m.
We can often help micro-enterprises by providing financial support in circumstances where they may be having difficulty in accessing credit from other commercial lending providers.
