The funds were raised for up to 10 years under the Business Project program.
The guarantors of the loan were the sole owner of the "Leader of groups" Sergei Belkin and his partner Igor Kulikov. As a pledge, according to "Kommersant", Sberbank was transferred to the building of the restaurant.
The press service of the Bashkir branch of Sberbank told Kommersant that the Group Leader is not fulfilling its obligations under the loan agreement since October 2017. The Bank is working to identify "all possible assets of the borrower and guarantors, including Sergey Belkin's personal property".

During the reconstruction, the "Leader of groups" completed the building in two floors. In March last year, an active area of 5,5 thousand square meters. m was put up for sale on behalf of Sberbank for 250 million rubles. Later the price was reduced to 170 million rubles.

Real estate market expert Rustem Kamalov believes that the market value of the building is correctly defined. "The group leader" bought it for about 120 million rubles. Taking into account the project, the superstructure of the additional floor and completed works, 170 million rubles. - An adequate price. Another thing is that it is very difficult to find a buyer for a building, because together with it a new owner will have to buy his concept. The building is designed for five different restaurants, and it is unrealistic to find an investor ready to invest in such a project in Ufa. Federal players, as far as I remember, this project did not interest at the time, "the expert said.
