Types of financing offered are:
• Project finance, which feature long-term repayment
• Raw material facility, which is a shorter-term loan
• Bill discounting alternative solutions
Project finance is long-term financing covering part of total cost of the project, including constructing business premises and purchasing the main production equipment.
Raw material facility is short-term financing that covers up to 100% of the cost of raw materials. The facility is a revolving credit facility which helps ensure the continuity of the production process. Due to the short-term nature of these financing solutions, the repayment period varies, but doesn’t exceed 12 months (with a grace period of 2-6 months). Annual profit rates stand at between 3% and 5%.
