Temporary Bridging Loan Programme (TBLP)

As announced at Solidarity Budget 2020, eligible enterprises may borrow up to $5 million under the TBLP, with the interest rate capped at 5% p.a., from Participating Financial Institutions (PFIs). The Government will provide 90% risk-share on these loans for new applications initiated from 8 April until 31 March 2021.

Eligible enterprises under the TBLP may also apply for a deferral of principal repayment to help them reduce their monthly cash outflow, subject to assessment by the PFIs.

Note: The TBLP started in March 2020, and is available until 31 March 2021. Interested enterprises can apply directly to the PFIs.
