German lessor VR Leasing is to offer its SME
customers a discount through parent bank DZ Bank, in collaboration
with the European Investment Bank (EIB).

Customers with 250 employees or fewer will be

between €125,000 and €12.5 million, lasting between 48 and 60
months, on items such as machinery and medical equipment.

customers via DZ Bank.

“What are we going to put together is a small
stimulus package.”
