(ČIA) The Czech-Moravian Guarantee and Development Bank (ČMZRB) has begun providing COVID 2 interest-free loans. The interest in them exhausted the CZK 1.5bn limit in three hours. This information was provided by Minister of Industry and Trade Karel Havlíček (for ANO) who said that he decided to increase the limit to CZK 5bn. Applications are therefore still being received. The ČMZRB has increased the number of staff for that reason.
