Specific Objective
The main objective under Component 2 of the action is to foster economic revitalization in eastern Ukraine and, specifically, to stimulate employment and economic growth.

Result 2. Access to credit and financing for self-employment and MSME development in the region is improved and more flexible to complement a loan guarantee scheme implemented by KfW. The expected result is that access to credit and financing for self-employment and MSME development in the region is improved and becomes more flexible.

Result 3. Provision of technical and vocational training, including skill development for adults' re-deployment, is of increasing quality and adjusted to local labour market demands.
