Bancomext rescheduled debts owed by clients in its second floor portfolio, which provided greater liquidity to borrowers during and after the sanitary contingency, in order to meet their payment commitments. 155 applications were rescheduled, with lines of credit totaling 3.843 billion dollars.
In addition, according to the Ministry of Finance, Bancomext met 35 requests for additional working capital to complement the restructurings proposed, with a credit line value of US$286 million.
Through its Second Floor Guarantee Program, Bancomext seeks to encourage the placement of a greater number of loans to companies and, in turn, improve the terms and conditions under which credit is granted.
