This project provides the HeavyFinance investor community with an opportunity to invest in the heavy equipment fleet development of the Lithuanian farm. The funds are collected to purchase a used combine harvester Claas Lexion 550 and a new mounted fertilizer spreader ZA-M 1591 Special. The purchased equipment will be pledged to secure the loan.
The farmer has been engaged in farming since 2015, and now she is developing a 149.74 ha crop farm in Pakruojis district. Most of the land is rented, and the farmer herself owns 8 ha. The farm currently grows crops such as wheat, oilseed rape, beans, and peas.
The farm's heavy-equipment fleet consists of two tractors, a combine harvester, a seed drill, and other necessary equipment, which is essential for efficient work. To increase the technical capacity of the farm, the businesswoman borrows 81.980 € from the HeavyFinance investor community. The funds will be used to purchase a used combine harvester, and a new mounted fertilizer spreader. The original value of the heavy equipment is 92.928 € including VAT, therefore part of the funds will be covered by the farmer herself.
The businesswoman had previously borrowed 24.500 € to buy a used Manitou MLT 735 H telescopic loader. Payments for this loan have been made on time.
The entrepreneur has other plans for the further development of the farm - in the future, she plans to acquire more arable land suitable for crop production and expand her agricultural activities.
