PrivatBank (Kyiv) has issued the first refinancing loan under the Affordable Loans 5-7-9% program at 0% per annum until the end of March 2021, the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture has said on its website.
“Under the Affordable loans 5-7-9% updated program, state-owned PrivatBank refinanced a loan to an entrepreneur in the amount of UAH 1.1 million at 0% until the end of March 2021. Partner banks continue to accept applications for new program tools, which were introduced by the government during lockdown measures,” the ministry said in the press release.
However, the demand for loans under such conditions amounted to about UAH 390 million over a week, the Economy Ministry said.
Applications for participation in the program from Credit Agricole Bank and Agroprosperis Bank are being considered, the ministry said. (Open4Business/Business World Magazine)
