German Desk – Financial Support and Solutions

Together with partner banks and the local German Chambers of Commerce, DEG is offering "German Desks". The service is available for SME German companies and their local trading partners. The particular needs of German firms and their local partners are handled at the office by a bank employee who operates in both languages and cultures.

The range of services extends from setting up accounts through services for financing trade and transaction banking, to credit lines or investment financing for local companies wishing to acquire German equipment, for example. In this way, companies can benefit from the combined network of the bank, the Chamber of Commerce and DEG.

German Desks

  • help to bridge cultural and language gaps
  • establish a close link between the local bank, the local business community, the German Chambers of Commerce Abroad and DEG's representative office on the ground
  • serve as a bridge for financing solutions which DEG itself could not offer on site

We offer German Desks in Accra/Ghana, Lagos/Nigeria, Nairobi/Kenya, Dhaka/Bangladesh, Jakarta/Indonesia and in Lima/Peru.
