Topic of the practice
Support to SMEs
Good Practice Information
Credinfo provides an online application, assessment and credit management facility. Originally set up to accelerate the credit application process, the Internet Based Micro Finance System was developed to provide an online facility for Hungary’s Local Enterprise Agency network helping SMEs to access funds.
The key aims are accelerating the credit application process, helping for profit and
not for profit SMEs to access finance, and to provide a one-stop internet based client application and management solution for any agency managing micro funding schemes for SMEs.
Partners pay a small installation cost for translation services and a monthly fee based on the number of clients supported to use the Credinfo system.
