Sometimes people have difficulties getting conventional credit. If this is the case for you and you want to become self-employed or set up a microenterprise (fewer than ten employees), you might be eligible for the European Progress Microfinance programme which can provide loans of up to EUR 25 000. If you have questions about application requirements and procedures, check if there are already microcredit providers in your country.
