Project Description

The company requests 816.000 € with 3 months of deferred repayment to finance recruitment of new staff and stocks of semi-finished products. This project will be realised by the end of the year.

This project is a medium-term loan with a capital amortisation deferment and as such presents a different method of capital repayment than standard projects. The first 3 months, the lenders will only receive interest; the following 33 months, the lenders will receive interest and principal amortization. This principal repayment profile matches the borrower’s financing needs while allowing lenders to earn a higher amount of interest.

The amount offered on the platform is limited to 399840€, which is in line with the regulatory limits.
