KB currently accepts applications under a guarantee programme of NRB intended for the support of entrepreneurs and businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic – the so-called COVID III programme. It is a guarantee programme available throughout the Czech Republic (incl. Prague), under which NRB provides support in the form of guarantees for operating loans.
