The Bulgarian Development Bank offers small and medium-sized enterprises a new product to overcome the negative effects of the prolonged increase in inflation and rising prices of basic goods and services. The programme provides working capital loans of up to BGN 200 thousand for companies that want to purchase raw materials at current prices and thus prevent higher costs in the future. This will help them to hold down the price of the final product they produce without anticipating a recent increase. The BDB’s programme is open to companies from all sectors. The condition is that they must be viable enterprises, and companies with lower credit ratings are also eligible.
