EFSE is having a remarkable social and economic impact: With a cumulative loan volume of around EUR 3.0 billion invested with partner lending institutions throughout the its target regions, EFSE has ultimately facilitated around 980,000 loans to MSEs and households, and played an instrumental role in securing more than 800,000 jobs.
EFSE’s performance is assessed annually according to the following criteria:
- Breadth of outreach, i.e. number of micro and small enterprises reached
- Depth of outreach, i.e. average loan size
