EaSI TA Workshop in Albania Met Attendees’ Expectations

Our recent workshop, entitled “Applying for and Contracting EaSI Financial Instruments for Microfinance Institutions” was designed to help Albanian MFIs learn what services are available under the EaSI TA Programme and understand how to apply for EaSI Financial Instruments. The workshop took place in Tirana, Albania on 13 December 2018, and was co-organized by the Albanian Microfinance Association.

The workshop was comprised of three sessions:

1. An overview of EaSI Financial Instruments and application requirements, presented by Simone Uccheddu, a European Investment Fund representative
2. A case study highlighting useful information about the application process and contractual arrangements, delivered by Altin Muca, a BESA Fund representative
3. A review of technical assistance services available to MFIs as part of the EaSI Technical Assistance Programme, delivered by Grzegorz Galusek, Microfinance Centre representative.

The workshop topic proved both interesting and useful for participants, with one commenting:

“This event was well-organized and structured with relevant information and practical advice.”
