Back (again) to the real economy.

The coronavirus has shown the fragility of the globalised economy and the appeal of the local-sharing economy, green industries and the real economy.

The world needs a dramatic switch to sustainable investments.

In the current financial context, still getting to grips with the global coronavirus pandemic, characterised by significant and unpredictable dynamics on the global markets, serious geopolitical unknowns and the repercussions caused by the introduction of social distancing; the real economy, green industries and local-sharing are proving more stable and less affected by global macroeconomic upheaval.

When we talk of the real economy, we mean the ‘tangible’ part of the economy. In other words, the real economy represents the production sector, composed of small, medium-sized and micro-enterprises.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are also a vital factor for growth, employment and innovation in developing countries, with a powerful social impact in their local communities.



The real economy, above all during this historic period, represents an opportunity for diversification, with ‘alternative’ characteristics compared with traditional financial markets.

Mikro Kapital has been investing in micro-finance projects since 2008, to support small, medium-sized and micro-enterprises in Eastern Europe, Russia, Belarus and along the Silk Road.

Mikro Kapital Moldova was launched in 2013 to support the country’s SMEs. The economy of the Republic of Moldova is in a transitional phase and it is vital that small commercial ventures be supported in order to promote growth and development in this part of the world. Currently, Mikro Kapital Moldova has 7 branches and is one of the few companies acting locally in support of SMEs.
