In an attempt to lower their interest rates, banks in Bulgaria have been offering loans to local businesses for as low as 5,000 baht ($769).
But some businesses are not getting the money.
Bulgarian news outlet news.bg reports that local banks have been charging interest rates of as much as 4,400 bahts per month, which means that many of them have no money left to repay their loans.
The Bulgarian bank regulator has already imposed a moratorium on new loans to companies that have not been paid back by a specified date, but many businesses have been left out in the cold.
In an effort to help the struggling business owners, the banks have started accepting donations for loans.
Banks in Bulgaria offer low interest rates and generous incentives to help their local clients.
