Micro-credit in Brussels

Micro-credit is intended for socially-excluded individuals, or those at risk of being so (unemployed, inactive, etc.) and for micro-entrepreneurs not having access to traditional bank credit.

In Brussels, several stakeholders offer personal (loan generally below €3,000) or professional micro-credits (loan for a maximum of 15,000 Euros):

Brusoc

Brusoc is a financing instrument, which, through the creation of local and sustainable employment, specialises in the economic revival of areas located in priority intervention zones for the Brussels Capital Region (priority intervention area). As a local economy and social partner, Brusoc targets those who don't have access to classic bank financing. It offers micro-credits to self-employed people, and loans for social economy projects.

BruPart

Brupart aims to encourage the creation, development and/or transmission of the activity of self-employed workers and small and medium enterprises located or planning to set up a professional activity in the Brussels-Capital Region.  This instrument offers the Boost-me loan to unemployed individuals receiving benefits, and to small companies less than 4 years old located or planning to set up a professional activity outside the priority intervention area.

Microstart

MicroStart’s objective is to support, through micro-credit financing, entrepreneurs excluded from the classic banking system in the context of creating or developing their own business. MicroStart focuses on the dialogue with the entrepreneur, the project in question and the human approach.

Credal

As a social credit cooperative, Crédal's objective is to make money invested by "co-operators" available to organisations active in social economy (solidarity credits), micro-entrepreneurs (professional micro-credits) and people excluded from the classic banking system (personal micro-credits).

Hefboom

Hefboom offers financial support and expert advice to companies and organisations active in the social and solidarity economy in Flanders and Brussels. Hefboom also offers ethical investment products. The organisation focuses on projects relating to the training and employment of at-risk groups.
