    Financing of small and medium sized venture undertaken by eligible SMEs in industry and services in Poland.

    As a dedicated loan to all eligible SMEs (e.g. industry, services, etc.) and in line with the revised EIB policy for SME lending, the amount of each allocation under the EIB loan may reach up to 100% of the intermediary’s sub-loan, capped at EUR 12.5m. However total share of the EIB allocations will not exceed 50% of the promoter’s total SME eligible loan portfolio signed during the EIB loan’s allocation period.

    Environmental aspects

    In accordance with the Bank's policy to ensure that sub-loans comply with relevant EU legislation, in particular in the fields of environment and public procurement, the intermediary shall stipulate with the final beneficiary that sub-projects undertaken by the latter with the proceeds of EIB funds should comply with the relevant legislation.

    The legal documentation will oblige the intermediary bank to ensure that any procurement procedures are done in accordance with EIB guidelines and the relevant applicable EU rules.


    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
