Agricultural Loans

For businesses with AMD 750M-2B annual turnover

Ameriabank has joined the Animal Husbandry Development Program in Armenia 2019-2024 designed to supply purebred cattle to farmers on favorable terms by partially subsidizing loan interest rates. The aim of the program is to improve the quality of livestock by leaving out cattle of questionable breeding, low yielding capacity or not fit for reproduction, and supplying farmers with quality purebred cattle; develop breeding; improve the yielding capacity of local livestock by cross-breeding; boost production of milk and meat while at the same time decreasing the cost of production and making it more competitive vs imported products. 

Farmers applying for the program can get a subsidized loan with 2% interest rate to purchase purebred high-yielding cattle. Grow your business and help develop your community. This is a perfect opportunity for you to bring your agricultural vision to life.

Ameriabank has joined the Energy Efficiency for SMEs loan program with the firm conviction that energy efficiency is instrumental for business in saving resources and managing the consequences of global warming.

Businesses in most diverse industries can apply, including manufacturing, construction, agriculture, transport, services, etc.

This financing option allows you to pay loan service costs out of saved funds, without incurring extra expenses.

We believe that together we can help in the development of agriculture in Armenia.
