The Applications Are Invited to the Fifth Annual Contest «Citi Russian Microentrepreneurship Awards»

The National Partnership of Microfinance Market Stakeholders (NAMMS), Russian Microfinance Center, and Citi Foundation invite applications to compete in the Fifth Annual Contest «Citi Russian Microentrepreneurship Awards». The Contest delivery is supported by the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and by the All-Russia’s Non-commercial SME Organization 'Opora Rossiyi’. Being held under the auspices of the United Nations the Contest became one of the most respected public events in the sphere of microfinance and individual entrepreneurship encouragement both in Russia and on the international arena.

In five years more than 350 nominees from most of the Russian regions participated in the Contest. These are the entrepreneurs who managed to use micro-loans to create their own, socially-significant, businesses. The overall success of the Contest in 2005-2008 showed that micro-financing has colossal potential for development and public recognition.

In addition to traditional categories, such as «Best Microentrepreneurship Employer», «Best Individual Entrepreneur», this year the winners will be awarded in the following nominations: «Best Microfinance Organization: Steadiness and Development Amidst the Crisis», «For Business Social Significance», and «Anticrisis Innovations».
The applications are being accepted from 27 November till 30 December 2009.
