    • The Committee on Employment and Social Affairs adopted the report by Kinga GONCZ (S&D, HU) amending, under the first reading of the codecision procedure, the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on establishing a European Microfinance Facility for Employment and Social Inclusion (Progress Microfinance Facility).

      The committee adopted an amendment which opens a separate budget line for the European Microfinance Facility. It states that the financial and economic crisis is now turning into an employment and social crisis. It considers that reallocating money from Progress is giving the wrong signal since Progress is targeting the most vulnerable groups. It is the common responsibility of Member States and the EU to implement the Progress Programme effectively under the present circumstances.

      It should be noted that this proposal is closely linked to the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Decision No 1672/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a Community Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity - Progress. The latter was rejected by the committee. (Please see COD/2009/0091).

      The main amendments are as follows:

      Financial contribution: the financial contribution from the Community budget for the Facility for the period from 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2013 shall be EUR 150 million (rather than EUR 100 as the Commission had proposed.) A separate budget line shall be created for the Facility.

      The total budget for support measures such as communication activities, monitoring, control, audit and evaluation which are directly necessary for the effective and efficient implementation of the Decision and for the achievement of its objectives, as referred to in Article 4(1)(d), shall not exceed EUR 1 million (rather than 1%  of the budget of the Facility.)

      Name: the facility will be called the European Microfinance Facility.

      Objective: the Facility shall provide Community resources to increase access and availability to micro-credits for: (a) persons who are at risk of losing their job or who have difficulties entering or re-entering the labour market and disadvantaged persons or persons who are at risk of social exclusion or who are finding it difficult to enter the conventional credit market and who want to start or further develop their own micro-enterprise, including self-employment; (b) micro-enterprises in the social economy and micro-enterprises which employ disadvantaged persons or persons who have lost their job, persons who are at risk of social exclusion or persons who are excluded from conventional credit markets.

      Beneficiaries: the Facility shall be open to national and local public and private bodies established in the Member States which provide microfinance to persons and micro-enterprises in the Member States. The committee adds that those public and private bodies shall closely cooperate with organisations engaged in representing the interests of the final beneficiaries of micro-credit and those who provide mentoring and training programmes to those final beneficiaries in order to create competitive and viable micro-enterprises.

      The committee adds that it is vital to accompany financing by means of micro-credit with an appropriate mentoring and training system so that the Facility yields the results hoped for in terms of effectiveness and social inclusion.

      In addition, public and private bodies providing micro-credit under the Decision shall comply with responsible lending principles and thereby avoid, in particular, over-indebtedness of persons and undertakings. Overall, MEPs consider that legal and regulatory obstacles to the development of micro-credit should be eliminated. They consider that it is appropriate to support microfinance by providing banking products and services which are adapted to the circumstances.

      Particular attention paid to women: MEPs underline that equality between women and men should be actively pursued as regards access to micro-credit facility.

      Management: financial institutions shall meet the objectives and implement the actions set out in the legislation.

      Maintaining the instrument beyond 2013:the Commission shall present an evaluation report to the European Parliament and to the Council in 2015, on the basis of which the Council shall decide whether to maintain or close the Facility.

      Annual report: no later than 12 months after the entry into force of this Decision and before 31 May of each year, the Commission shall present to the European Parliament and to the Council a quantitative and qualitative annual report on the activities under this Decision in the previous year. The report will focus mainly on the extent of the use of the instrument by Member States and the sustainability of the results achieved and shall in particular contain information relating to applications adopted and rejected, contracts concluded, actions funded including their complementarity with other Community interventions, notably the ESF. It shall also contain information, activity by activity, on the evolution and development of micro-enterprises that are supported by the Facility.

      Based on the annual, the Commission shall make efforts to ensure that the Facility meets the objective set out in the text and is accessible across the European Union to those who are at risk of social exclusion or who are finding it difficult to enter the conventional credit market.

      Lastly, on the basis of the second interim evaluation, the European Parliament and the Council shall decide whether to extend the duration of the functioning of the Facility.

    • PURPOSE : to establish the European Progress Microfinance Facility (the Facility).

      LEGISLATIVE ACT : Decision No 283/2010/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a European Progress Microfinance Facility for employment and social inclusion.

      CONTEXT : the Council and the European Parliament adopted a decision establishing a EUR 100 million European microfinance facility for employment and social inclusion together with the Decision No 284/2010/EU amending Decision No 1672/2006/EC establishing "Progress", on the financing of the new facility (see COD/2009/0091).

      The two decisions, which form part of the EU's response to the crisis, are aimed at giving the unemployed the chance of a new start and opening the way to entrepreneurship for persons who find it difficult or impossible to gain access to the conventional credit market, through microcredits of up to EUR 25 000. The facility also improves access to microfinance for micro-enterprises (those employing fewer than 10 people and with annual turnover not exceeding EUR 2 million), especially those in the social economy and those employing vulnerable or disadvantaged persons.

      CONTENT : following a first-reading agreement with the European Parliament, the Council and European Parliament adopted this Decision, establishing a EUR 100 million European microfinance facility for employment and social inclusion.

      Objective: the Facility will  provide Union resources to increase access to, and availability of, microfinance for:

      • persons who have lost or are at risk of losing their job, or who have difficulties entering or re-entering the labour market, as well as persons who are facing the threat of social exclusion or vulnerable persons who are in a disadvantaged position with regard to access to the conventional credit market and who want to start or further develop their own micro-enterprise, including self-employment;
      • micro-enterprises, especially in the social economy, as well as micro-enterprises which employ persons referred to above.

      The Facility will promote equal opportunities for women and men.

      Budget: the financial contribution from the Union budget for the Facility for the period from 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2013 shall be EUR 100 million. EUR 60 million comes from reallocation of funds from the Progress Programme (see COD/2009/0091), EUR 40 million is "fresh money", using the margins in heading 1a (competitiveness for growth and employment) under the ceiling of the multiannual financial framework. The financial contribution shall cover the full cost of the Facility, including management fees for international financial institutions managing the Union contribution as well as any other eligible costs.

      Eligible actions and beneficiaries: the Facility shall be implemented by using the following types of actions, as appropriate: (a) guarantees and risk-sharing instruments; (b) equity instruments; (c) debt instruments; (d) support measures, such as communication activities, monitoring, control, audit and evaluation which are directly necessary for the effective and efficient implementation of this Decision and for the achievement of its objectives. However, the total budget for support measures must not exceed 1% of the budget of the Facility.  The Facility shall be open to public and private bodies established on national, regional and local levels in the Member States which provide microfinance to persons and micro-enterprises in the Member States. In order to reach the final beneficiaries and to create competitive and viable micro-enterprises, public and private shall cooperate closely with organisations engaged in representing the interests of the final beneficiaries of microcredit and with organisations, in particular those supported by the ESF, who provide mentoring and training programmes to those final beneficiaries.

      Management: the Commission will manage the Facility. In order to implement the Facility, with the exception of the support measures, the Commission shall conclude agreements with international financial institutions, in particular with the EIB and the EIF, in accordance with Regulation No 1605/2002 and Commission Regulation No 2342/2002. Those agreements shall contain detailed provisions for the implementation of the tasks entrusted to those financial institutions, including provisions specifying the need to ensure additionality and coordination with existing European and national financial instruments, and to promote a comprehensive and balanced coverage between the Member States.

      The agreements shall, furthermore, include an obligation on the part of the international financial institutions to re-invest the resources and proceeds, including dividends and reimbursements, for a period of six years after the starting date of the Facility. Upon closure of the Facility, the remaining balance due to the European Union shall be repaid to the general budget of the EU. The international financial institutions shall conclude written agreements with the public and private providers of microfinance laying down their obligations to use the resources made available from the Facility in accordance with the objectives set out above and to provide information for the establishment of the annual reports. The budget for support measures shall be managed by the Commission.

      Annual report: the international financial institutions shall transmit to the Commission annual implementation reports setting out the supported activities in terms of financial implementation, distribution and accessibility of funding with regard to sectors and type of beneficiaries, applications accepted or rejected, contracts concluded, actions funded and results. No later than 8 April 2011 and each year thereafter, the Commission shall present to the European Parliament and to the Council a quantitative and qualitative annual report on the activities undertaken under the Decision in the previous year. The annual report shall be based on the implementation reports and shall, in particular, contain information relating to applications adopted or rejected, contracts concluded, actions funded, the total number and type of beneficiaries and the distribution of amounts geographically and per sector. The annual report shall contain information on the impact and sustainability of the Facility expressed by the total number of persons and micro-enterprises which are still employed or in business at the end of the period of support provided to them through the Facility. Lastly, it will include information on complementarity with other Union interventions, notably the ESF.

      Based on the annual report, the Commission shall make efforts to ensure that the Facility meets the objective set out and is accessible across the EU to those who are at risk of social exclusion or who are finding it difficult to access the conventional credit market.

      Evaluation: the Commission shall carry out interim and final evaluations at its own initiative and in close cooperation with the international financial institutions. The interim evaluation shall be completed four years after the start of the Facility and the final evaluation at the latest one year after the end of the mandate(s) given to the international financial institutions. The final evaluation shall, in particular, examine the extent to which the Facility as a whole has achieved its objectives.

      ENTRY INTO FORCE : 08/04/2010.

      text
      • In accordance with Decision No 283/2010/EU establishing a European Progress Microfinance Facility which entered into force on 8 April 2010, the Commission presents its first annual report taking stock of implementation of Progress Microfinance. . The report is based on the implementation reports submitted by the European Investment Fund (EIF). Since Progress Microfinance was established only recently, the report focuses on the key features of the instrument, the design of the products and the first stages of implementation. It also describes communication work undertaken by the Commission and the EIF, how Progress Microfinance complements other EU instruments and the outlook for further development.

        Before the crisis, potential demand for micro-credit in the EU in the short term was estimated at over 700 000 new loans worth approximately EUR 6 296 million. Most microcredit in the EU is provided by non-commercial microfinance institutions (NGOs, foundations, government bodies, Member States' promotional banks and non-bank financial institutions), but these providers do not currently have the capacity or resources to meet this heavy demand. The European Parliament recognised the problem and asked the Commission to step up its efforts to develop microcredit in the EU. This resulted in the adoption of the Decision establishing Progress Microfinance Facility. The financial contribution from the EU budget adds up to EUR 100 million for the period 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2013. Of that sum, EUR 60 million comes from the PROGRESS programme (Decision No 1672/2006/EC) and EUR 40 million from the margins of the budget. The possibility of the budgetary authority deciding a 'payback' of up to EUR 20 million to the PROGRESS programme via the draft annual budget over the period 2011 to 2013 was part of the agreement between Parliament and Council on the adoption of the Decision.

        The Commission estimates that the Union's contribution of EUR 100 million will leverage microloans of more than EUR 500 million over eight years thanks to the following:

        • additional funding from other investors: it is assumed that the EU's investment can attract funding from third parties. The European Investment Bank (EIB) is already committed to matching the EU contribution and making EUR 100 million available for the 'funded instruments' part. A further EUR 47 million is expected from other investors;
        • the revolving nature of the funds: the funds can be used more than once during the lifetime of the Progress Microfinance Facility. The Decision provides for the last (re-)investment to be made in 2016;
        • leverage generated by the products: estimates suggest that every euro committed in guarantees could generate at least six euros in microcredit, while the funded instruments are expected to have a leverage effect of between one and three.

        The report goes on to describe the setting-up and key features of the guarantees window and of the funded instruments respectively and who benefits from them. It notes that the guarantees window has essentially been modelled on the SMEGguarantees window of the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (Decision No 1639/2006/EC). The agreements signed and the transactions forecasts suggest that the various instruments on offer are attractive to a wide range of intermediaries. Approximately one third of transactions under preparation are expected to be with banks and two thirds with non-banks. As regards funded instruments only, 53 % of the contracts, in terms of volume, are likely to be signed with smaller banks and 47 % with non-bank microfinance institutions. This means that the first transactions will be well balanced in terms of the types of intermediary targeted, which will also help reach the broad range of micro-borrowers targeted by Progress Microfinance.

        So far, the transactions forecasts point to greater interest in funded instruments than in guarantees, which means that the way the EU resources have been apportioned between the two sections of Progress Microfinance (75 % versus 25 %) has been right. Of the range of products offered under the FCP, senior loans have, as expected, been the most in demand (63 %). Nevertheless, all available financial instruments, i.e. senior loans, subordinated loans, risk-sharing loans and direct and indirect equity, are included in the forecast for transactions, which demonstrates that the wide product range reflects actual demand across targeted intermediaries and helps optimise EU-wide outreach.

        The Commission and the EIF also expect satisfactory fund absorption. Over the period 2010-13, EUR 25 million will be made available each year to the Microfinance Facility. In 2010 EUR 10 million was committed for guarantees and EUR 18 million for funded instruments. Another EUR 24 million contributed by the EIB takes the aggregate amount made available to the FCP up to EUR 42 million. For 2011 the Commission has committed close to EUR 5 million for guarantees4 and EUR 20 million for funded instruments.

        As regards guarantees, a further EUR 8 million are expected to be absorbed in 2011, while the forecast for transactions involving funded instruments suggests that EUR 44 million will be absorbed up to the end of the year.

        The next annual report, to be presented in June 2012 based on the 2011 implementation reports provided by the EIF, will assess in greater detail the accessibility of funding to individual sectors and types of beneficiary, together with the geographical and sectoral distribution.
