FITSAL funds members who are farmers (livestock and crop) to boost their businesses. This loan helps the farmers buy feed, seedlings, fertilizer and whatever other products or equipment they may require to ease the process of growing crops or livestock. The loans are given for a longer period than any other loan and this is because we understands the need for the crops and livestock to grow before they can be sold to generate income. The tenor of agric finance is usually 6 – 12 months.
