The SME sector is set for a €75m cash injection via a State lender, the Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland (SBCI).
The SBCI was set up to ensure favourable loan rates reached SMEs, by funnelling State-sourced money through banks and other lenders, who could then pass on the benefits.
The €75m package is going to Finance Ireland, a non bank entity. It will be used to boost Finance Ireland’s offering in areas like hire purchase and working capital products.
Finance Ireland chief executive Billy Kane said: “the SBCI funding has been a significant benefit to the many hundreds of SME customers we deal with on a daily basis, and this new facility will ensure that benefit continues into the future.”
