Microequity may be the key to overcoming stress of micro entrepreneurs who are over-exposed to micro-credit. French microangels are willing to invest small amounts to help people start their own business and move out of poverty. The French microangels invest through syndication in microenterprise projects. Each angel provides only a few hundred Euros, but together they are able to provide as much as three thousand Euros to firms. They look for social and environmental returns rather than financial returns. These include geographical proximity and solidarity.
