We recall that in April of the current year a subsidiary company of KazAgro National holding – KazAgroFinance JSC expanded its product range and started new special programs “Reliable farmer” and “Own feed”, as well as amended the standards terms of financial leasing.
The program “Reliable farmer” gives possibility to acquire in lease agricultural machinery without advanced payment. The current and previously financed clients of KazAgroFinance JSC may use this program. The sole requirement to clients is to meet the criteria of bona fide borrower.
Under the program “Own feed” the financing of domestic forage production development is implemented. Within the new program Kazakhstani farmers may acquire necessary agricultural machinery for up to 10 years with the reduced advance payment in 10%.
