Interest-free loans for individuals on unpaid leave and self-employed

The program is created to support employed and self-employed individuals, farmers, and seasonal workers who have ceased activity.

The program changes adopted by the Council of Ministers in December 2020 provide an opportunity to support more people, including those who were once on unpaid leave, were left without an employment contract, and were referred to public employment services.

The BDB program provides more opportunities for the inclusion of also seasonal workers and young people who started their employment in 2020, who have at least 3 months of employment between January 1st, 2020 and the loan application date.
