  • Facilitating Knowledge Exchange Through Peer-to-Peer Visits and Consulting

We are also grateful for the support we have received from organizations:

  • YBI

In September 2013 Qredits joined Youth Business International (YBI) at its global summit held in London. YBI is a growing global network of over 60 enterprise support organisations with a passion for empowering underserved young people (18-35 years old) to start, scale and sustain their businesses.

Together, we focus on sustainable and inclusive entrepreneurship, equipping underserved young people with the skills, confidence, and connections they need to beat the odds and become successful, responsible business owners.

  • European Investment Fund (EIF)

The European Commission has created a number of instruments to support the European microfinance sector in its development towards a sustainable and reliable sector. Qredits has been able to successfully apply for a number of these instruments made available through EIF. Currently these are:

  1. Invest-EU-MF guarantee for loans < €50K
  2. Invest-EU-SME guarantee for loans €50K
  • CMA

The CMFA is a network of Micro-finance Practitioners in the Caribbean. Domiciled in Kingston, Jamaica, the CMFA was formed under the auspices of the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), a member of the IDB Group. 

Despite its potential to positively impact the livelihoods of the Caribbean people, micro and small business finance are still underdeveloped in this region.

  • Social Enterprise NL

Qredits is a social enterprise and considered as such in The Netherlands (ANBI-status).  Qredits has been an active member of Social Enterprise Netherlands for many years and core member of their Waymaker (Baanbreker) group.  Waymakers are large, leading social enterprises. 

Who find solutions to social challenges, and show that you can grow and be successful as a company. This is not obvious because the intended impact is an additional challenge in the business model. Social entrepreneurs must therefore be highly innovative in all aspects of their business.   

  • EMN

Qredits is an active member of the European Microfinance Network (EMN). In June 2013 Qredits, in the person of CEO Elwin Groenevelt, was elected to serve a four-year term as Treasurer on the EMN Board and next seven years as EMN President. EMN is a member-based not-for-profit organization based in Brussels, which promotes microfinance as a tool to fight social and financial exclusion in Europe through self-employment and the creation of microenterprises. 

It is the Network’s mission to facilitate capacity building and to advocate on behalf of the sector at European and Member State levels. EMN’s core membership is made up of microfinance Practitioners throughout Europe as well as service providers to the sector or banks that are involved in European microfinance issues and support the development of microfinance in Europe.
