Offenbach (dpa / lhe) – The state of Hesse is extending another of its Corona aid programs for the economy. Freelancers as well as small and medium-sized companies can apply for liquidity support through WIBank until December 31, 2021. The funding institute announced on Monday that it had been decided to renew it by half a year.
“With this program alone, we were able to help 126 mainly small companies with more than 17 million euros through the crisis,” said Ministers Tarek Al-Wazir (Greens / Economy) and Michael Boddenberg (CDU / Finance). Many entrepreneurs would have to struggle with the economic consequences of the Corona crisis for a while. “You can still count on the land.”
As part of the “Liquidity Aid for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in Hessen”, small and medium-sized enterprises can obtain loans from EUR 5,000 to EUR 500,000 through their house bank.
Last week, the state had already extended the so-called Hessen microliquidity by half a year until December 31. This program is aimed at companies with a maximum of 50 full-time positions as well as self-employed people who have got into financial difficulties due to the Corona crisis. You can apply for a direct loan of 3,000 to 35,000 guaranteed by the State of Hesse.
