The maximum capital payable for the Small Loan varies according to the duration of the applicant’s contract. For example, for a public administration employee with a 12-month contract, the maximum payable capital is equal to a net monthly salary, but if he does not have any other financing, he can request a capital equal to two monthly salaries. If, on the other hand, the public employee has a 36-month contract, for example, the maximum payable capital will be equal to 3 net monthly salaries, which can also double in this case, reaching 6, if the applicant does not have other types of financing or salary-backed loan.

Thanks to the Small Loan Government Agency a maximum capital of 5,000 euros can be paid, but in some cases it is possible to obtain a higher figure based on one’s monthly salary. Usually this amount is credited to the applicant’s current account, and the monthly installments of the repayment plan will be applied from the same current account.
The Small Loan Government Agency can be provided in two ways:

  • direct disbursement: in this case it is Government Agency that disburses the required capital, drawing directly on its own funds available for this purpose;
  • Indirect disbursement: through the funds of banking institutions with which Government Agency has an agreement.
    However, choosing one mode rather than the other does not make any difference to the applicant.

The Small Loan Government Agency can also be granted with the assignment of one fifth of one’s salary or pension: in this case the monthly installments to repay the disbursed capital are deducted directly from the debtor’s salary or pension and cannot exceed one fifth of his monthly salary. The interest rate in general is convenient because the risk of insolvency is very small but changes anyway based on certain factors, such as the age of the person requesting it; certainly, however, it is a convenient solution for those who are afraid of forgetting the expiration of monthly installments.

Finally, the amortization plan of a Small Government Agency Loan with a salary assignment can have a maximum duration of 10 years.
