EU-backed small business loans

Support for entrepreneurs and businesses is available through a wide range of EU programmes, via local financial institutions. Companies of any size or sector can benefit from this support.

Types of funding

Many types of funding are available, including loans, guarantees and equity funding.

How it works

The European Commission provides funding to businesses through local financial institutions in EU countries. These institutions, which include banks, guarantee societies or equity investors, determine the exact financing conditions – the amount, duration, interest rates and fees.

Benefits of EU co-financing

Easier access to financing with extra advantages such as reduced interest rates or less collateral requirements.
