SME loan portfolio grew by 40% over the year at Sberbank

The SME loan portfolio grew by almost 40% over the year at Sberbank. Its volume amounted to 2,9 trillion rubles, which is 800 billion rubles more than a year ago.

As EastRussia was informed in the press service of the Far Eastern Bank of Sberbank, Sberbank's share in the small and medium-sized business lending market increased from 36% to 41%.

As the deputy chairman of the board of Sberbank Anatoly Popov noted, lending to SMEs is a priority for the bank.

“Our SME loan portfolio has not only been growing over the past few years, but the pace of this growth is increasing every year. We continue to take an active part in the implementation of concessional lending programs - the loan portfolio of SMEs with state support is more than 750 billion rubles. We recently joined the renewed 8,5% lending program for small and medium-sized businesses, implemented by the SME Corporation and the Bank of Russia. The bank has already received applications from entrepreneurs for a total amount of more than five billion rubles, ”Anatoly Popov noted.

He added that since the beginning of the year, more than 14 thousand restructuring has been carried out for small and medium-sized enterprises in the amount of 25 billion rubles.

Sberbank actively develops and implements new products and services for small and medium-sized businesses. Thus, the duration of the payment was reduced to one second, and the payment itself became available to customers around the clock and seven days a week. For small and micro-business clients, Sberbank provides an online lending process, according to which half of the online lending is carried out with a decision-making process of three minutes or more.

The number of SberBusiness Internet Bank users is 2,4 million customers. In three years, almost all financial products have been converted to digital, more than 50 non-banking services for doing business have become available to customers.
