About two weeks ago, the Egyptian government launched the “Mayglash Alik” initiative, with the aim of stimulating consumption and supporting the local product, after the recession caused by the repercussions of the new Corona virus.
The government has made available a website that contains all types of goods offered within the initiative and its discounts, as well as participating stores and companies.

Four banks, namely the National Bank of Egypt, Banque Misr, Banque du Caire and the Commercial International Bank (CIB), began promoting personal loans with the aim of highlighting their participation in the consumption stimulus initiative, “What defeats you.”
In line with the initiative, the four banks decided to reduce interest on personal loans and cancel administrative fees for a temporary period to encourage customers to increase borrowing from banks for the purpose of purchasing various commodities of durable or entertainment goods.
The specifications of a personal loan vary from one bank to another, whether in terms of the financing value, the interest rate and the repayment period.
