Global loans – leasing for SME promotion
By providing global loans for lease investments, KfW promotes German SMEs and the investments they make by way of lease financing. Leasing has become a key form of financing in recent years, making it an alternative to conventional bank loans.
The key promotional area is characterised by the very broad range of capital goods that are supported, and by the various segments in which the funding recipients operate: from the local baker’s fleet to modern production facilities in the manufacturing industry, the global loans for lease financing offer constant and attractive financing via banks and leasing companies to a large number of sectors and for a range of capital goods. This means that the commitment volume has stabilised at a level that remains high and the number of cooperation partners has increased further since the product was launched.
The main advantage for entrepreneurs is the flexibility involved: in addition to conventional KfW promotional loans, they can also resort to leasing for smaller investments if necessary.
