Interestingly, in the work of the Belarusian Fund for financial support have both similarities and differences with the activities of the Fund "Damu". Belarusian Fund, as well as the Fund "Damu", deals with the state support of small (Fund "Damu" - even the middle) business.
But, in contrast to Fund "Damu", Belarusian fund can give directly to the businesses a three-year treasury bonds with an interest rate equal to the rate of refinancing, and property leasing (finance lease) for a period of 5 years. Moreover, the Belarusian Fund provides loan guarantees to entrepreneurs through the banks. The same tool is also provided in our Fund "Damu". True, our warranty is much cheaper - only 1% of the guarantee amount. A limit of the Belarusian Fund Commission for providing the guarantee is 5%.As part of the a memorandum signed by the two Funds, a joint business mission Pavlodar entrepreneurs in Belarus and, accordingly, the Belarusian businessmen - to Kazakhstan will be organized.
