Our goal with this business loan
For whom is the loan intended?
An EU-subsidised loan is a loan developed for micro- and small businesses in Sweden that would otherwise find it difficult to access finance or that could not afford to pay the high interest rates charged by banks.
Ponture’s EIF guarantee allows Ponture to give loans which have more flexible terms, at a lower interest rate, and are specially designed for companies with up to 9 employees.
This Inclusvie Business Loan is provided in direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its negative impact on Sweden’s small businesses.
One of the most affected groups are entrepreneurs with a foreign background are overrepresented among the companies negatively impacted by the pandemic as they continue to struggle more to secure capital comparing with other entrepreneur groups.
One of our goals is to increase access to business loans for companies that have otherwise had low access to corporate finance.
A great many of small businesses are run by people with a foreign background, women, or young entrepreneurs.
With our favorable terms we can make it possible for more companies to achieve greater growth that otherwise fall outside the financing norms in Sweden.
The importance of acting now
Sweden’s small companies account for 96% of all companies, creating 23% of all Swedish jobs. The COVID-19 pandemic, with its devastating consequences, is now presenting a threat to an entire generation of entrepreneurs and a large segment of the total labor market.
However, the governmental and financial support and subsidies offered have been sub-standard. We want to help change that!
"We firmly believe in equal access to finance for all. We convinced that you can build a good business based on helping entrepreneurs by offering cheaper, faster, more flexible, and more accessible business loans."

Partnership with the European Investment Fund
The EU subsidy applies to Ponture's own loans of up to SEK 250,000 with more favourable terms, such as lower interest rates and a limited guarantee of only 10-20% of the principal loan amount. This can be done because the loan is covered by an EU guarantee under the Employment and Social Innovation Programme (EaSI).
The loan is made possible through EaSI, with the EIF and the EIB participating among other stakeholders to increase the lending capacity of finance companies operating in micro-finance and financial social impact..
The loan is aligned with the targets we have set to increase access to finance for small enterprises and self-employed people to create more jobs and contribute to social integration.
