Can I get an agribusiness line of credit?

I have been in the agricultural business for over 5 years now and business has been good. But it can be so much better if I can get some help to manage my cashflow. Because I earn seasonal income, I always seem to find myself short of money at some point, which usually ends me in some sort of compromise and loss of potential opportunities for gains. I want to enquire if I can get an agribusiness line of credit and if yes, what type of deal will that be.

Hi Rupez,

You can get agribusiness line of credit and this can help you have a good cashflow solutions for seasonal income. This will help you bridge the gap in your cashflow so you can get on with running your farm.

WIth this, you may be able to borrow anywhere between 60-70% of the value of the agribusiness and farmland in order to secure the line of credit. If you use residential property as security then you can actually borrow up to 80% of the property value.

The interest rate on this will be the variable interest rate only using the 30, 60, 90 or 180-day bank bill swap rate plus a margin, and you can capitalise interest for up to 2 years with some lenders.

It is an unlimited revolving facility with a minimum LOC limit usually of $10,000 and with no maximum limit. As long as you have the equity and can show that you can afford the LOC, you can borrow what you need.

The rate using one of those various bank bill rates is actually quite flexible and reasonable for me. I'm really interested in this so I want to speak with one of your mortgage brokers to discuss this in detail so I will call sometime in the coming week.
