Loan Assistance for SMEs

[Singapore] To support viable SMEs that may have cash flow concerns or wish to continue growing their business, the Government will introduce a new SME Working Capital Loan scheme, for loans of up to $300,000 per SME. Under this scheme, the Government will co-share 50% of the default risk of these loans with participating financial institutions, to encourage lending to SMEs.

The SME Working Capital Loan will be available for three years, starting from 2016.
