This loan serves farmers undertaking intensive agricultural activities that cannot be easily interrupted while the farmer waits for a new loan. The repayment period is five years, and the amount of security for production credit differs according to the size of the loan.

Medium-term loan – for individual farmers, legal entities and related business. A cash credit account, this product is for farmers with limited assets who want to grow their business.
