Qredits is a private foundation started on 1 January 2009 by a group of public and private partners. It is the only nationally operating Microfinance Institution in The Netherlands.
Qredits' vision is to build a strong and independent entrepreneurship culture in the Netherlands by providing financing, mentoring and tools for micro-entrepreneurs that have a viable business plan, yet are unable to obtain credit facilities from conventional lending institutions.
Qredits is the leading alternative credit provider for small and medium enterprises in the Netherlands. It has 80 employees and works with more than 600 volunteer mentors. Since its inceptions, Qredits has issued over 12,000 loans for a total of more than €250,000,000.
