MEDSt@rts wants to help young people with promising business ideas overcome the traditional credit constraints to start or scale up their enterprise.

The project will develop an innovative supporting model to facilitate access to funding for Mediterranean “non-bankable” people: unemployed people – especially women and young people between 18 and 40 years old – and businesses in the shadow economy.

The objective of the operation is the creation of a common transnational program as an alternative system of access to credit inspired by ethical finance and solidarity principles, involving public and private institutions.
