Guarantee fund

A guarantee fund to facilitate access to funding

The guarantee fund aims primarily to promote the development of emptying companies by facilitating access to credit, in order to enable them to renew their emptying trucks and purchase spare parts, and to be able to ultimately comply with future requirements related to the implementation of the operating license.

The Guarantee Fund is trying to promote the development of a certain category of businesses by facilitating their access to funding.

It seeks to urge the bankers to finance businesses that are not able to provide adequate collateral or whose projects may seem too risky.

For the emptiers, this is a major instrument to boost the sanitation sector.

Why a Guarantee Fund ?

A guarantee is a financial instrument to protect a credit institution (usually a commercial bank) in the event the borrower fails to repay a loan.

The guarantee is an irrevocable promise from the guarantor to the lender: if the borrower fails to repay, the guarantor will fully or partially assume the borrower’s obligations. The guarantee fund compensates for any losses incurred by the credit institution in granting the loan.
