We close the week of results in the competitiveness of SMEs with the ATM for SMEs project.

They are working on improving access to microfinance for SMEs.

What have they achieved already?

They influenced the Regional Operational Programme in Świętokrzyskie Region in Poland.

The Marshal Office of Świętokrzyskie mobilised EUR 7.5 million for two projects offering new financial instruments such as loans or seed capital investments for start-up enterprises in the region.


The inspiration came from good practices in microfinance for SMEs from Italy and Hungary.

You can read more about one of them in a report from the Policy Learning Platform workshop on fostering entrepreneurship and business creation.
