As reported, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the resolution to launch the program "Affordable Loans at 5-7-9%" from February 1, 2020. The state support program for micro and small businesses will allow participants to receive up to UAH 1.5 million of available credit at 5, 7 or 9% for creating or expanding their own business. It is estimated that about 50,000 borrowers will be able to participate in this program in 2020, which will boost employment in Ukraine, develop innovative and efficient businesses, and thus expand the tax base and increase revenues to the state budget.
