Changes in loan terms

Within 7 working days from the moment of notification of the refusal of the loan refinancing or withdrawal of the loan after refinancing by the Central Bank of the RA, a new loan agreement has to be signed for the refinancing of the loan within the terms defined for the current agricultural loans in AMD. And in case of not signing a new loan agreement within the stipulated period, the annual interest rate defined by the current contract is set to 19.9%, as well as a monthly service fee is set at 0.75% of the loan balance as of the date of change. There will be no recalculation in regards to early repayments made before the amended schedule takes effect.

  1. When financing both operational and capital expenses, the operational expenses portion cannot exceed AMD 33,000,000.
  2. The loan interest is calculated with respect to the outstanding amount, based on the annual interest rate. Whereas, the annual percentage rate (APR) shows the cost of the loan if the interest and all other required fees are duly paid according to the repayment schedule. The APR calculation is described in the Annual Percentage Rate section of this page.
  3. A start-up agricultural business is considered to be a case when the potential beneficiary has not had any other active business in the previous 6 months (agricultural or other industries).

  6. Liquid asset collateral — state registered agricultural machinery, a vehicle, real estate. There is no need to insure the collateral.
  7. Flexible repayment schedule — a schedule that allows varying amounts of principal payment each month.
  8. Grace period — a period, during which no principal repayments are made.
  9. Tranche — a total loan is approved by signing one loan agreement, however, the disbursement is made in parts, subject to the pre-established conditions for each tranche. If the loan is approved in tranches, the collateral agreement can be signed for the full amount of the loan, or separately for each tranche. One or more of the tranches may be provided in the form of a new loan with current FINCA rates. Maximum disbursement period between the first and last tranche – 6 months.

Other Notes
  • The borrower can apply for the loan in all FINCA branches.
  • Before signing the contract you will receive an individual sheet which will show your individual loan terms.
Early Repayment
  • The borrower can repay the loan earlier than stipulated by the payment schedule without incurring penalties. Upon early repayment, together with the reduction of the principal, the borrower’s total credit expenses (interest, other fees) are reduced proportionally, except for the cases when the payer submits a different written order. Penalties and other fees incurred as a result of failure to properly fulfill obligations stipulated by the RA legislation and the loan contract, as well as the fees defined by the Article 15 of the RA Law on Consumer Credit are not reduced. Upon full early repayment of the loan, the borrower pays the service fees and other charges, interest and principal amounts calculated as of the payment date.
  • Payments for future months can be made in advance by submitting a written order. Repayments for each upcoming month are made in the following order: 1) service fees and other charges, 2) interest, 3) principal.
Warnings And Penalties
  • In case the borrower breaches the contractual obligations, FINCA may change the interest rate of the loan following the order provided by the contract and the terms constituting an integral part of the contract.
  • In case of failure to fulfill the contractual obligations according to the payment schedule, the borrower is obligated to pay a PENALTY for each overdue day in the amount of: 1) 0.13% of the overdue principal, 2) 0.13% of the overdue interest.
  • If the borrower fails to repay the principal on time, application of the contractual interest rate towards the overdue amount is terminated and a 24% annual interest rate is applied from the day of breaching the schedule till the loan repayment date. If the amount paid is not sufficient to cover all overdue obligations, the creditor’s expenses incurred in efforts to receive the due payments from the borrower are paid first, followed by the service fees, penalties, interest and principal. This order may change per the creditor’s decision based on the borrower’s written request.
  • In case of failing to fulfill your loan obligations, this information is sent to the credit bureau where your credit history is formed. Bad credit history can prevent you from receiving a new loan in the future.
  • In case of not fulfilling your loan obligations on time, your property may be confiscated in accordance with the law.
  • If the collateral is insufficient to cover loan obligations when repaying them at the expense of the collateral, payments are made at the expense of your other property.

The annual percentage rate calculation is based on the following formula:

A – the initial loan amount
n – the sequence number of the installment for loan repayment
N – the sequence number of the last installment for loan repayment
Kn – the amount of the nth installment for loan repayment
Dn – the number of days between the loan disbursement date and the date of the nth installment for loan repayment
