Digitalisation firms komuno and LPA announced today the development of an online portal for the automated processing of grants and loans on behalf of Rentenbank. Germany’s development agency for agribusiness, forestry and rural areas, Rentenbank lent over €6 billion in low interest loans last year, with farmers buying more machinery and rural infrastructure.  

The development of the online portal and interface connection is taking place in two stages.  komuno and LPA will implement the online portal for applicants and Rentenbank by the end of 2021. The portal will then be expanded to provide connections with applicants’ own banking institutions next year.

“The rapid implementation of the portal is possible thanks to the many years of preparatory work done by komuno and LPA in the area of subsidies: we are building on the existing komuno infrastructure and expanding it into a fully comprehensive and independent subsidy portal for Rentenbank,” says Stefan Lucht, Managing Director and founder of LPA.

“The new funding portal can implement any funding programme thanks to an integrated construction kit. It is so easy to use that new programmes can be created and managed by anyone. ‘Scalability by design’ means that the portal can be expanded flexibly and growing requirements can be implemented efficiently and with little effort,” adds Thomas Eitenmüller, Managing Director of komuno GmbH.

komuno GmbH is the provider of komuno, the digital platform for municipal loans and subsidies. komuno brings municipal budgets and lenders together. Cities, municipalities and special-purpose associations place their loan tenders free of charge with financial institutions of their choice, and financial institutions submit legally binding offers. Active on the market since September 2018, komuno is a joint venture of Helaba Digital GmbH & Co. KG and the LPA Group.
