This was indicated by a survey carried out by the Association of Banks of Argentina (Adeba) among its associates, with a cut to last Friday, April 3
In the last two weeks, the banks began the process of assisting MSMEs with loans of 24% TNA (and in some cases 22% TNA) for the payment of salaries, within the framework of the line promoted by the Central Bank of the Republic Argentina through Communication A 6943.
According to a sampling carried out with ADEBA member banks, as of Friday, April 3, the national capital banks had agreed to an amount that exceeds $ 10 billion, yielding an average of $ 1,400,000 per company.
This sum grows day by day in ADEBA banks, therefore it is expected that the number of loans granted to 24% for MiPymes will continue to increase. The entities that participated in the survey represent 80% of the loans granted by national private banks.
In addition to the assistance for the payment of wages, the banks expanded lines and current account agreements to their clients, in order to meet other types of business needs. To the aforementioned assistance, we must add the loans granted by public banks and foreign capital banks.
