Terms of Funds Allocation to SMEs

To participate in the SME State Financial Support Program banks should meet the selection requirements for potential partner banks.

This evaluation is only conducted if the bank meets the requirements mentioned above.

The OJSC SME Bank has the right to deny the credit organization participation in the SME State Financial Support Program or suspend its participation in the Program if it detects financial or non-financial factors that according to the OJSC SME Bank can influence the credit organization financial stability or provide reputational risks for the State Corporation Bank for Development and Foreign Economic Affairs (Vnesheconombank).
