  • Refinancing rate as of 1 September 2021 is 10%. 
  • Let us assume that the bank offers an interest rate of 13%.
  • State co-financing will amount to 10$-1.5%=8.5%. However, since the subsidy shall not exceed 8%, only 8% will be subsidized.
  • The borrower will be expected to pay annual interest in the amount of 5% (for a loan with 13% interest rate minus subsidy of 8%) for 60 months.
