Our system of marketing, customer selection, as well as a low percentage of delays is our pillar that investors can rely on. In 2020, only 0.7% of our customers were late with their payment for more than 30 days. This is due to the well-functioning of the company’s employees who always carefully approach the research of leasing recipients, which allows us to minimize risks significantly.”
