Baiterek Holding’s subsidiaries contributing to the program implementation

The Holding’s subsidiaries implement the State Program providing financial services at the expense of budgetary, own, and borrowed funds. The State Program is implemented by the subsidiaries, which previously belonged to the KazAgro National Management Holding. KazAgro merged into Baiterek Holding in March 2021. These companies are licensed to carry out certain types of banking operations.

The Agrarian Credit Corporation (hereinafter – ACC) issues loans for investment projects, finances spring field and harvesting works, and funds second-tier banks, credit partnerships, microfinance organizations, and leasing companies that then finance agribusinesses.

Funding is provided at a rate from 1.5% per annum (at the expense of budgetary funds for sowing and harvesting campaigns) to 7% per annum, taking into account subsidized remuneration rates (at the expense of extra-budgetary funds allocated for the production and processing of agricultural products). The maximum loan term is 12 years, depending on funding sources.

In December 2021, the Fund for Financial Support of Agriculture (hereinafter – FFSA) was merged into the ACC. The FFSA’s functions of issuing microcredits and insuring projects in the agro-industrial complex were taken over by the ACC.

KazAgroFinance (hereinafter – KAF) leases agricultural machinery at a remuneration rate of up to 6% per annum for a period of up to 10 years, depending on the type of machinery. The KAFsubsidizes up to 25% of the cost of agricultural machinery. The money can also be used to pay an advance payment.

By the order of the President, 100% of KAF shares were transferred to the ACC on July 25, 2022.

The loans issued by Baiterek Holding’s subsidiaries have a grace period for repayment of the principal debt, depending on the industry the financed project belongs to. The Holding’s subsidiaries provide more favorable conditions for property pledges than second-tier banks. The subsidiaries also accept hard-to-sell property in rural areas as collateral.

Feel free to visit the subsidiaries’ websites or regional branches to get more information on the financial support programs.
