Agricultural financing remains one of the most difficult challenges for farmers in South Africa. Farming is a capital-intensive business. As critical times in the industry approach for farmers, they become increasingly desperate for financing. Without financing there can be no production.

“We at Jupidex realise how the challenges in today’s agricultural industry can overwhelm our farmers and that is why we are very excited to share good news with them,” says ZW Nichols, Segment Manager at Jupidex.

WesBank and Jupidex join hands

ZW explains: “The biggest mistake farmers can make when it comes to financing is that they buy cheaper but less suitable implements in cash, when there are excellent financing options available to them at the best interest rates.

“Jupidex and WesBank recently joined hands to assist farmers in their farming success, by offering financing options on some of our products. Our financing option focuses on offering our farmers accessible and customised financing options so that they can purchase the best implements for the job,” he adds.

ZW Nichols, Segment Manager at Jupidex, brought exciting news about implement financing to farmers at this year’s Balfour Hooidag.

Which products are covered by this financing?

“The range of products we offer financing on are our Kverneland, Vicon and McHale hay and forage equipment,” says ZW.

He elaborates: “We offer financing on our complete range of McHale balers and bale wrappers, as well as on our Andreoli farm equipment, Vicon and Kverneland mowers and on our Kverneland sprayers. We also offer up to two years warranty on our Kverneland equipment on the financing plan.”

“In the future, we will also offer financing on our fertiliser spreaders as well as on our tillage equipment,” adds ZW.

Advantages of Jupidex and WesBank’s financing

ZW explains: “For the past forty years, WesBank has been one of the largest financing houses with vehicle financing in South Africa, which makes it so much easier for us to walk a path with the farmer.

“What sets Jupidex and WesBank apart from the rest is the fact that our parent company, Plennegy, has been doing business with WesBank for years, and we have built up a very strong relationship with WesBank over the years. We understand each other.”

How does the process work?

He explains: “We offer our farmers customised and flexible financing options that meet their farms’ unique requirements. The farmer only needs to make sure he or she gets the right interest rate and the payment structure  meeting his or her needs.

“We also offer competitive rates and interest rates that help the farmer with continued access to our range of equipment, and we strive to make the process as easy as possible for the farmer, from the application to the approval process,” concludes ZW.
