Banca Intesa will offer a new postponement of loan repayment to its customers
In line with the Decision of the National Bank of Serbia (NBS) on temporary measures for banks for mitigating the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic with the aim of preserving the financial system, Banca Intesa will offer a new postponement of loan repayment (moratorium) to its customers. In this way, private individuals, farmers, entrepreneurs and legal entities will be enabled to put their loan obligations on hold over a further two months.
“Amid uncertainty and impact caused by the global coronavirus pandemic, a part of citizens is faced with reduced income, and a significant portion of the economy and companies with slowdowns, or even complete halts in business activity, which is why the previous NBS’ decision to allow debt repayment postponed turned out to be of exceptional importance not only for our customers, but also for the overall stability of the economic and financial systems. This is evidenced by the fact that the majority of customers on the banking market, and the majority of Banca Intesa customers as well, opted for the loan moratorium. Given the prolonged effects of the pandemic, I believe that the latest measure of the central bank to introduce a new loan repayment moratorium in August and September will help citizens and the economy overcome all challenges and difficulties they are facing in this stage”, said Draginja Djuric, Head of Banca Intesa Executive Board.
