The Increase of the Availability of Financial Resources for Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises of the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship in the years 2007-2013 through JEREMIE Holding Fund

Andrzej Tokarski, Maciej Tokarski


JEREMIE (Joint European Resources for Micro-to-Medium Enterprises) is a non-subsidized mechanism for the support of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises. It is a joint initiative of the European Commission, European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Investment Fund (EIF), which is based upon revolving financial instruments. The concept of the creation of the initiative was to fill the financial gap in the scope of the financial instruments for the support of the MSMEs sector and to increase the supply of capital, including the risk capital for the enterprises, particularly for the smallest ones which conduct their business activities at the regional level. Contrary to European means, the aid offered within JEREMIE is not a direct refinancing in its nature,

The aim of this paper is to present the essence of the JEREMIE initiative, the benefits which it offers for the enterprise in Poland, with special attention paid to the possibility of increasing the MSME sector financing. The analysis was based on data relating to the construction and use of JEREMIE distribution in the Kujavian-Pomeranian region. In the 2014-2020 financial framework proposal, the Jeremie initiative is to be continued and the funds available for its implementation are set to increase, compared to the financial framework 2007-2013.
