Key lessons to be adopted from the three practical visits:
1. A collaboration of public and non-governmental sectors. It may be interesting to test whether such an involvement could be used to further improve the financial inclusion matter within the MI-BOSPO area of activities.
2. The improvement of the social performance management. It could be useful for MI-BOSPO to use some examples to further internally and externally promote and manage its social performance.
3. Although it is difficult, based on legal framework, to engage with volunteers, MI-BOSPO can try to find opportunities for having a project that involves talent and knowledge from the experts' community.
Key lessons to be adopted from the two meetings:
1. How to explore potential for social investing. DG NEAR is an interesting vehicle and, in addition to this, MI-BOSPO should look into other available resources such as Helenos, the first European private equity fund or Cosme, the programme for the “Competitiveness of Enterprises and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises”.
2. Bosnia and Herzegovina sector cannot access funding before it is eligible.
3. Lastly, MI-BOSPO can take advantage of EMN’s availability for peer-to-peer funding and for advocacy activities.
