It is the first bank among the specialised ones to check sustainability of financed companies
Mano Bank considers sustainability to be its business priority and thus, it pays big attention to sustainability of own activities and financing of sustainable projects. Among the specialised banks in Lithuania, it was the first to start checking sustainability before granting loans to the enterprises.
Mano Bank was the first financial institution in Lithuania that signed the portfolio guarantee agreement under the new programme “InvestEU,” where the European Investment Fund (EIF) is going to grant guarantees for loans in two directions of the programme: sustainability and bigger competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises.
According to the sustainability guarantees, the loans in the amount of more than 28 million euro will be granted to finance small and medium-sized business (SMB) to contribute to the green European reform. The projects that increase accessibility of services, products and infrastructure to people with disabilities may also apply for these investments. The loans of 14 million euro more will be granted under the SMB competitiveness guarantee to enterprises aggrieved because of Covid-19 pandemic that managed to stabilise their activities but need additional financing to refinance loans, to strengthen reserves of circulating capital, and to invest further into the projects under implementation.
