Under the Affordable Loans at 5-7-9 programme, UAH 109 billion in loans have been issued during the full-scale war, including UAH 1.5 billion over the past week, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal has said.
However, under the portfolio guarantee programme, loans worth almost UAH 4 billion were disbursed in April alone.
“Grants within the eRobota framework have entailed the creation of more than 4,000 new businesses. We have expanded the list of areas for using microgrant funds and launched a grant programme for veterans,” the Prime Minister said.
Denys Shmyhal also said that in April, the business activity expectations index exceeded the equilibrium level for the first time in a year and a half. According to him, this indicates more or less positive expectations of entrepreneurs – to the extent possible in a full-scale war. (Government portal/Business World Magazine)
