Created 30 years ago, Adie is a French NGO. Adie’s core activity is to offer business loans and business development services to unemployed people who plan to start or develop an existing micro-business but cannot access loans from the traditional French banking sector. Adie also proposes microinsurance schemes as well as personal “mobility” loans, aimed at enhancing employability. In 2018, Adie financed more than 23,000 clients.
Objective of the Good Practice
The objective is to enhance access to, or stability in, the job market by fostering clients’ mobility through microloans (vehicle acquisition & leasing, driving licence funding purposes, etc.), microinsurance (vehicle insurance) and “good deal” offers (preferred prices on fuel, car maintenance & repair, etc.)
