NIB and Deutsche Leasing Sverige continue to finance smaller businesses together

NIB and Deutsche Leasing Sverige AB (DLS) have launched a new EUR 6 million loan programme to finance equipment leasing for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and smaller mid-caps in NIB’s member countries.

The five-year loan programme will support SMEs and small mid-caps in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland in acquiring production equipment.

This is the third loan facility signed between Deutsche Leasing Sverige and NIB; the first was agreed in 2016 and the second followed in 2017. The previous facilities have both been fully allocated.

“We are pleased to continue our cooperation with Deutsche Leasing Sverige to support SMEs and smaller mid-caps. The loan programme will improve access to financing for purchases of costly capital equipment, as well as for other investments that raise productivity and increase market efficiency in NIB’s member countries”, says Henrik Normann, NIB’s President & CEO.
