More than 5,000 companies have already applied for an interest-free restart loan from the MFB, and banks operating MFB points are still waiting to receive applications in the coming weeks. The MFB contacted the Notaries Chamber so that the debt returns required for the loan can be documented more quickly.

All the banks that operate the MFB point network have received a lot of attention, but at the moment, as stated on Granite Bank, customers have been primarily concerned with product conditions.

However, there are bottlenecks in the terms of the loan.
According to the conditions, in order to apply for a loan, it is not necessary to have a real estate guarantee, but it is necessary for the client to unilaterally acknowledge a debt documented after the contract is concluded in a special deed. The MFB consults with the Notaries Chamber to ensure that notaries use a simplified form for notarial deed. According to the bank, clients will be relieved of the burden in the process, and MFB Pont will send the customer’s data to the notary. The MFB also consults with the Notaries Chamber on capacity planning to avoid potential congestion. The banks that trigger MFB points are also seeking to reduce management in other cases and pledge to help their clients obtain notarized bond.
