Created in 2007, PerMicro is specialised in microcredit. Initially only operating in Turin, PerMicro now operates in 11 Italian regions and has 15 branches. It is the first Italian microcredit company that professionally manages all phases of a micro company project: scouting, preliminary inquiry, risk assumption, and follow up. PerMicro finances up to 25,000 EUR for companies or up to 10,000 EUR for families and is designed for people who do not have easy access to traditional bank credits.
Objective of the Good Practice:
To demonstrate the usefulness and the need to measure impact and social performance through standardised methodologies (as requested by some stakeholders), as well as the importance of defining and using an ad hoc methodology for measuring social impact in terms of output, outcome and impact.
