Starting from 16 April 2020, the Landwirtschaftliche Rentenbank, with the support of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), offers a liquidity loan combined with a guarantee. The program is aimed at companies in agriculture including viticulture and horticulture, forestry, fishing and aquaculture, who are suffering from the consequences of the corona pandemic and do not dispose of sufficient collateral.

Federal Minister of Agriculture Julia Klöckner: “The Corona Crisis has made the enormous importance of a comprehensive and regional agricultural production very clear to all of us. For me it is important, that our domestic agriculture in Germany has a sound future. Like many other industries, it faces major economic challenges. We therefore support our agricultural companies with this guarantee programme. In this way we create stability in order to mitigate the consequences of the crisis for them as much as possible. "

The programme provides loans with an amount of up to 3 million Euros. Loans to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can be guarantee up to 90%, those to larger companies up to 80% of the loan amount.
