Our farming and agricultural loans division is growing with strength and this is reflected in the huge volume of successful loans we have provided to the industry over the past few months.
We can provide funding for livestock, machines, tractors, land purchases and also tenant farmers.
Taking a commercial view on each and every farming application we see is giving much needed help when the main stream lenders still seem very reluctant to lend, even though most farmers have been in business for well over two decades.
We have now increased our prominence with our new advert in the Farmers Weekly and will continue to expand in this sector during the course of the year. A farmer’s needs can be very specific and only through industry understanding and knowledge can one be expected to help in a fast and effective manner. This is why, once again, we are proving to be breath of fresh air in a credit climate with a “computer says no” mentality.
At Nationwide it’s not the computer making the decision, and we very rarely say “no”.
