MBCA AgriBusiness devises and delivers tailored solutions for the agricultural industry.

Our specialist approach

We provide guidance and support on all agriculture-related requests, and ensure continuity, accessibility, and quicker decision making. Partnerships with leading academic institutions keep us abreast of the latest research developments and emerging trends in the industry.

Our specialist industry knowledge is aligned to the needs of both the primary and secondary production of three main market sectors, namely:

  • Agronomy (e.g grain, oil seeds, sugar, cotton, plants and flowers);
  • Horticulture (e.g fruit, wine, vegetables and forestry); and
  • Livestock production (e.g dairy, beef, poultry, aquaculture and game farming).

Because we understand the variable and cyclical nature of agribusinesses, we have tailored flexible and cost-effective finance packages that specifically cater for these sectors. We match export and import needs with strong global transacting products and simplified risk-hedging instruments.

Lending solutions          

Our agricultural lending solutions include:

Agri-instalment sale agreement

             

We provide financing on all types of agricultural equipment and machinery (eg tractors and farming implements) with flexible repayment options such as annual payments and extended repayment periods of up to 5 years, depending on life expectancy and depreciation.

Agri-medium-term loan (AMTL)

 

The AML can be used for financing productive assets (eg breeding herds of cattle) or enhancing existing assets, and includes an option to withdraw surplus funds arising from excess payments.

Agri-production loan (APL)

 

This loan finances production inputs such as maize, soya and wheat. The product takes into account seasonality, the need to hedge prices, as well as the necessity of crop insurance.

Agri-trade finance

Our creative approach to trade finance and interlinking risk control means you can optimise the risk-return relationship. Key components of our offering include:

  • post import financing
  • pre export financing
  • Discounting of bills.
