Land Bank Loans

Land as a factor of production is of immense importance, it is the original source of all material wealth and the economic prosperity of a country is closely linked with the richness of her natural resources. It is in line with the role and importance played by land that a financial institution like Land Bank decided to bankroll activities that are agriculturally related.

Land and Development Bank of South Africa is a specialist agricultural bank guided by a government mandate to provide financial services to the commercial farming sector and to agri-business and to make available new, appropriately designed financial products that would facilitate access to finance by new entrants from historically disadvantaged backgrounds.
