The local Lebanese market is witnessing a new momentum under the NEEREA-LEA financing mechanisms. Despite an increase in the loans interest rates (now reaching a 2.25%), the number of loan requests is witnessing a remarkable increase. Lebanese commercial banks including Fransabank, Bank of Beirut, Audi Bank, IBL Bank, Crédit Libanais, and SGBL are now leading the way in terms of loan requests. LCEC encourages all interested parties to benefit from the subsidized loans of the Central Bank of Lebanon (BDL).
