The Government will provide 90% risk-share on these loans.

There are 16 financial institutions(FIs) participating in this programme. Credit criteria & interest rate are different for all banks.

Eligible enterprises under the TBLP may also apply for up to 1 year deferral of principal repayment to help manage their debt, subject to assessment by the PFIs.
