Based on the agreement with the European Investment Bank (EIB), Santander Leasing in Poland offers its customers from the SME and agro segment financing in the form of leasing or a loan on more attractive terms and a lower margin than is standard for this type of transaction.
The minimum duration of the agreement isn`t imposed in advance, and the transaction can be carried out under a simplified and standard procedure. Entrepreneurs who don`t employ more than 250 people, generate a turnover of less than EUR 50 million or have assets of less than EUR 43 million per year can benefit from financing under cooperation with the EIB.
More information (in Polish) about the offer and how to take advantage of it can be found in the section:

Financing from the EIB – a loan
Santander Leasing is open to cooperating with international financial institutions to use the available funds for socially important purposes, primarily in supporting SMEs or financing climate-neutral investments. Cooperation with the EIB Group will allow for even greater involvement in supporting business owners from the SME sector and financing investments in a difficult period related to mood swings in individual sectors of the Polish economy.
Cooperation with the EIB is another project in which Santander Leasing is involved together with a recognized international financial institution. In 2021, as part of cooperation with the Council of Europe Development Bank, the company obtained EUR 150 million to finance fixed assets and production equipment necessary for SMEs to run their businesses. Earlier, in 2019, thanks to cooperation with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the company received EUR 80 million to finance the modernization of Polish enterprises in the field of energy efficiency, renewable energy, waste management, and water resources, as well as other projects related to environmental protection.
