Monitoring services are oriented to meet the initial needs of an individual interested to develop a micro-project. The seed phase is the starting point of a continuous accompaniment and support to develop a small project aiming to obtain a microcredit or other financial support.
The importance of this mentoring phase is the accompaniment of the potential beneficiary to built a pre-feasibility plan needed to apply for external financial supports.
Usually, the competences of a mentor regard:
General information on the development of micro-projects and its related problems focusing on initiatives of social value
Knowledge of the available services (microcredit, insurance and so on) and successful experiences already consolidated in the sector
Opportunities for brief training and meetings
