The European Microfinance Network is looking to hire an evaluation consultancy agency/service or independent consultant to conduct an external and independent final evaluation of the project “Supporting the resilience of MFIs and their clients: Technical Assistance in response to COVID-19 crisis”.
The project was developed and designed in March 2020, at the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time the impact of the pandemic on national economies was becoming a tangible reality in several European countries and worldwide, affecting citizens and enterprises alike. Micro-entrepreneurs were particularly affected by the impact of the pandemic crisis due to the nature of their activities (micro and small businesses) and their socio-economic background.
As a result of these developments EMN drafted a project to build the capacity of microfinance institutions to be able to serve micro-entrepreneurs in this new context.
