What do we mean by ‘interest-free loan’?

Interest-Free Loan Programme

Interest-free loans are loans in which no interest needs to be paid. With interest-free loans, green businesses only repay the original principal and are not required to provide collateral.

The Interest-Free Loan Program offers repayable grants of up to US$50,000 to cover operation and/or capital expenses of the selected beneficiary, high-potential green business in the growth stage.

An informational webinar on the interest-free loan program was held on March 8 2022.  Click here to watch the webinar.
