New funding to businesses in Serbia
Long-term investment loans within the "Project for Competitive Agriculture of Serbia"
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in Serbia will benefit from additional funding from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the European Union (EU) which will be available at Intesa Leasing.
A new €5 million credit line will be on-lent by Intesa Leasing to Serbian enterprises allowing them to invest in improving their work standards and processes, making them more competitive in local and EU markets. The aim is to encourage SMEs to invest in upgrades in three key areas: environmental protection, health and safety, and product quality.
Darko Popović, President of the Board of Directors of Intesa Leasing and CEO of Banca Intesa stated “We are very glad to continue our successful cooperation with the EBRD, particularly amidst the post Covid-19 circumstances, which was especially challenging for SMEs. With the new credit line, we will offer favourable leasing conditions to our SME clients, aiming at improving their work standards in order to boost the competitiveness of this segment in the local and EU markets, while fostering their engagement in environmental protection, health and safety and product quality areas.”
