Softer financing terms for SMEs
High demand is expected
The next three months will see the softening of financing terms for business by commercial banks in Croatia, according to a survey that the central bank HNB has conducted regularly four times a year since 2012. More than in the first quarter, bankers are planning to loosen their financing terms, and the most so for SMEs. Also, bankers expect to see growing demand for loans in the following three months, particularly from SMEs. However, their expectation is considerably lower compared to the previous period.
