The government has made changes in the loan and leasing subsidies program to mitigate the pandemic-caused problems.
It has made significant changes in the program.
As the Produce in Georgia program reports, the loan limit dropped to 50,000 GEL, while the maximum volume hit ten mln GEL, giving the business sector more chances to enjoy the co-sponsorship.

The number of co-sponsorship months increased from 24 to 36 months. The co-sponsorship interest rate also changed.

The budget of the program supporting micro and small entrepreneurship increased from 10 to 40 million GEL.
The upper limit of the program focused on regional development became 30,000 GEL. Female entrepreneurs, persons with disabilities, and other vulnerable social groups are the priority.
