The European project M.I.C.R.O. focuses on the creation of a professional profile with
competences on business start-up and on access to micro-credit for migrants.
The online course has been specifically designed to enhance the skills of the NGOs operators in
order to acquire the following competences: to be aware and overcome cultural differences and
religious aspects barring migrants from the entrepreneurial context, to identify the necessary
financial concepts for entrepreneurship, to manage formal and alternative financing sources to start
a business, to evaluate and strengthen the feasibility of a business idea as well as being able to
inform migrants on the microcredit system and its auxiliary services.
The course is composed by 4 Modules:
- Intercultural communication;
- Entrepreneurship Education;
- Financial Education;
- Access to financing;
The structure and the contents of the module have been successfully tested on 20 operators who
expressed positive and encouraging feedbacks.
The course will be uploaded on an online platform making the resources open and freely available.
At the end of the course, the operators will be able to inform, guide and lead the migrant in each
phase, supporting the migrant user facing the financial critical issues
