ERP-Bremen Funding credit with indemnification clause (ERP-BFKH SME)
Shared risk is half the risk
The ERP-BFKH SME is a variant of the ERP-Bremen funding credit SME (ERP-BFK SME): Your house bank is only liable for a share of 50 % of the loan. In other words, we release your bank from half of the liability, and the risk from the ERP-BFK SME is shared between us and your bank.

- Freelance professionals
- Natural persons
