SMEs will be able to receive credit from commercial banks with an 80% guarantee from the Fund of Funds, the remaining 20% will be a risk borne by the bank itself.

The measure is part of the recovery programme announced today by Minister of Economy Kiril Petkov and Minister of Finance Assen Vassilev.

The credit amount will be up to 70% of the company’s turnover for 2019 or 2020, or up to 3 million Leva. The first agreements have already been signed between the Fund of Funds and the commercial banks.

The programme aims to facilitate businesses’ access to credit for resuming their activities after the gradual lifting of the Covid-19 restrictions.
