The SSF is a facility for development loans established by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO. SSF offers loans for start-up business projects of Switzerland domiciled entrepreneurs/enterprises in emerging economies (economies under development or in transition). The management of the SSF is delegated to FINANCEcontact in Zurich.
