Guarantees granted for credits dedicated to the financing of working capital on the basis of the certificates issued by APIA
Pursuant to Law no. 329/2009 and to Government Emergency Ordinance no. 43/2013, the Rural Credit Guarantee Fund (FGCR) may provide guarantees in favour of banks and other financing institutions that have entered into Cooperation Agreements with the Fund, in order to secure the loans they grant for financing operating activities/working capitals in agriculture based on APIA certifications (agricultural land, animal welfare, etc.).
The FGCR guarantee can cover up to 80 % of the loan value. The outstanding amount of the guarantees, up to the value of the loan plus the related interest, will be secured by the beneficiary/third-party guarantors. The main guarantee is usually represented by the transfer of the amounts to be collected from APIA.
The Fund has developed simplified guarantee provision mechanisms, so that obtaining the guarantee should not hinder the lending process.
