With the measures announced by the government, we will be making an unprecedented effort to help businesses at risk of financial difficulty as a result of the coronavirus crisis. The aim is to enable them to get their business growing again on healthy economic foundations when the crisis ends</i>”, said Marcel Leyers, Chairman of BIL’s Executive Committee.</p>
<p>In an agreement with the government, BIL and Luxembourg’s other main banks will grant small and medium-sized enterprises and self-employed workers a six-month moratorium on existing loans. New credit facilities will be 85% guaranteed by the State.</p>
<p>“<i>The coronavirus health crisis is hitting the country’s businesses hard. Mandatory closures and supply problems are causing sales to fall, yet certain operating costs and financial obligations remain. Our employees are all busy implementing the announced measures and helping otherwise healthy businesses to overcome the crisis</i>”, said Jeffrey Dentzer, Head of Corporate and Institutional Banking at BIL.</p>

|Gulf petrol stations now available through Pay@pump with BIL||https://www.bil.com/en/bil-group/pressroom/news/Pages/Gulf-petrol-stations-now-available-through-Pay@pump-with-BIL.aspx||Gulf petrol stations now available through Pay@pump with BIL||<p>Available through the BILnet mobile app, the Pay@pump service co-developed with the Luxembourgish start-up CarPay-Diem enables BIL clients to pay for petrol on their smartphone. At its launch in December 2019, it could be used for 28 Esso stations and 3 Texaco stations. Now BIL has added 16 Gulf stations, resulting in a network of 47 partner petrol stations covering the entire country.</p>
<p>“<i>The quest to offer simple, convenient mobile services that make life easier for our clients is the essence of our digital strategy. With CarPay-Diem’s technology and the support of our new partner Gulf, clients can use this innovative service anywhere in Luxembourg,</i>” says Olivier Debehogne, Head of Retail and Private Banking Luxembourg, and Digital.</p>
<p>“<i>Our clients’ lifestyles are constantly changing, and it is very important that we keep up. Smartphones play a central role in modern life. We use them to stay connected, so why not to pay for petrol? Our philosophy is to offer clients the full range of payment options, including mobile payment,</i>” adds Lou Bausch, Marketing Manager Gulf Luxembourg.</p>
<p>How does Pay@pump work? When a driver arrives at a partner petrol station, they select the “Pay for my fuel” option in the BILnet app and choose the pump they want to use on their smartphone screen. They will receive instant confirmation that the pump is ready. Then all they have to do is fill up. Once they’ve finished, the payment is made automatically and the receipt for the transaction appears on their smartphone screen. They can leave the petrol station without a second thought.</p>
