VTB approved 35 billion rubles of loans to entrepreneurs

VTB approved 35 billion rubles of loans to entrepreneurs
Under a business lending program at 2% per annum, VTB Bank approved 35 billion of borrowed funds in four thousand applications. This is more than half of the received requests.

According to the VTB press service, the total number of applications received from entrepreneurs amounted to 7,4 thousand. The amount of requested funds is about 50 billion rubles. Of these, more than 16 billion rubles have already been issued for 1,9 thousand applications.

 The preferential lending program at 2% per annum exempts customers from loan payments until December 28, 2020. At the same time, if the company has maintained a staff of at least 90%, the state will repay 100% of the principal debt and interest on the loan for the borrower. If you save at least 80% of the employees, 50% of the debt will be written off.

The most active users of the program are Moscow, the Kemerovo Region, the Republic of Tatarstan, the Irkutsk Region and St. Petersburg. Most often, a loan is applied to representatives of catering, sanatoriums, representatives of retail vehicles, hospitality, dentistry and companies specializing in freight transportation.

According to the Chairman of the Board of VTB Bank Denis Bortnikov, the demand for the program became apparent in the first week after the start. At the same time, a significant part of the limit provided by the government has already been mastered. Of the total flow of applications, about 60% falls on small business: VTB alone receives about one thousand applications from business daily.
