YEREVAN, March 30. /ARKA/. The Yerevan-based Unibank has announced today a new type of unsecured loans on favorable terms, designed to increase the level of availability of credit funds to a larger number of entrepreneurs. According to a bank’s press release, the maximum amount of a loan is 4 million Armenian drams, 8,500 US dollars and 7,500 euros.

"The availability of credit funds for small businesses continues to be one of the most urgent issues.
