Options to support SMEs in coping with the impact of COVID-19

It is clear to everyone that the crisis caused by COVID-19 is hitting small businesses the hardest, moreover  for many segments, the matter will not be limited to the removal of quarantine,  it will take enough to restore SMEs  long period of time. Many lenders, unfortunately, have taken a course in squeezing the maximum out of customers at the current time and resigned themselves to the fact that the future base of customers in the small business segment for work will be significantly thinner.

But you can  act ahead of the curve, sacrifice some part of the profit in the moment and  help small businesses survive by winning  ultimately much more in the future. How? Let's see!

Commissions and other fixed payments

Set commission holidays for a predictable critical period (2 to 6 months), this measure will support current customers and contributes to the influx of new ones from less flexible players

Clients without loans

Proactively offer loans to businesses with active settlement accounts
with deferred payments and subsidies
% by the government (if such a program is in place) for wages and rent payments

Clients with loans

Without waiting for the first delays in payments, contact customers with an offer about restructuring and renegotiation of conditions, the same measure can be offered “to the market” for clients of other organizations
