Case study: Supporting “generation start-up”: Opportunities for Hungarian MFIs

This case note presents our initial research findings and analysis on the start-up enterprise landscape in Europe (in particular:Romania, Hungary, and Bulgaria). This initial exploratory research was designed to identify current good practice among microfinance service providers serving start-ups; understand the future potential role of microfinance vis-a-vis start-ups; and propose concrete and practical steps to bring about more support for start-ups. This project is being implemented within the four-year Framework Partnership Agreement of MFC and the European Commission within the EaSI Programme. MFC plans to continue the research in additional countries of in Eastern and Western Europe in 2017. http://mfc.org.pl/mfcwp/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/MFC-case-study-Hungary-final.pdf
