Roma Economic Development Initiative (REDI) is an ecosystem builder focusing on developing tools to increase vulnerable communities’ economic empowerment. We initially built a non-profit in Romania (2016) and set-up a financial institution in Luxembourg (2018), a recycling company in North Macedonia (2020), set-up several business clubs in the region (2017-2020). We trained several tens of young Roma to work in banks in the region. In the process, we reached out to more than 2500 entrepreneurs active in vulnerable communities and offered close to 35000 hours of business development support, consulting, and advocacy.

Led by a team of young Roma Professionals from different European countries, REDI aims to provide access to affordable finance for Roma entrepreneurs in Central, Eastern Europe, and the Balkans and provide technical assistance for the selected pool of entrepreneurs to increase their expertise and skills. REDI is the first-ever institution dedicated to facilitating funding for start-ups and businesses among Europe’s most vulnerable group – the Roma people, leveraging on the ground presence and institutional relationship. We believe that enabling entrepreneurs to develop a business will lead to long-term employment and boosting job opportunities in the communities.
