We also understand that farming income in cyclical, that's why we provide unique micro loans payable as a single instalment after three months to assist the farming community with day-to-day needs and unexpected costs.

Micro loans are open to all types of farmers, farmworkers, and service providers in farm-related enterprises. Applicants must be 18 years and older with an active SA bank account.
