The current status

According to the European Central Bank’s (ECB) SAFE report, in 2020 only half of domestic small and medium-sized enterprises (0-249 employees) turned to the banking system for financing. Only 30% of these managed to get their loan approved. In other words, in total, only 15% were financed by the banking system. Among the main reasons for the rejection of the applications, were the failure to
meet the standard banking criteria, as well as the absence of a viable business model and plan.
Furthermore, according to the report “Financial Management of SMEs: Financial Education and Small Business” by the Hellenic Confederation of Professionals, Craftsmen and Merchants, responsibility for the current level of efficiency of SMEs lies, among other things, with the entrepreneurs’ low level of financial literacy, which creates obstacles against innovation, updating and competitiveness.
