GGF’s long‐time partner has access to the 1,000 branch offices of its parent, and serves corporate clients and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in various sectors, the statement adds.

The leasing company serves corporate clients and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in various sectors.

The partnership began with the first loan in 2010, the fund’s chairman Christopher Knowles said. “The new credit line further deepens our relationship and will allow the GGF to foster additional renewable energy production and the replacement of outdated machinery with more energy efficient models,” he underscored.

Yapı Kredi Leasing’s general manager Fatih Torun said his company plans to allocate the funds to boost organizations working on renewable energy projects. “Our aim is to help companies improve their business while increasing their energy efficiency, which in return protects the environment.
