This way we're able to empower a new segment of customers in France and Italy. The service offers great advantage for customers who want to concentrate on running their businesses and don't want to spend too much time on managing their finances. In a paperless and digital process, clients can get approval for a loan up to EUR 100,000 within 10 minutes. It's a fully transparent and flexible product: for example, the maximum limit can be taken in different loans. This solution illustrates how ING is using the numerous opportunities the digital revolution offers to help people to stay a step ahead in life and in business."
