Earlier it was reported that farmers will be able to purchase agricultural machinery in leasing at a rate of 2% per annum. Another 7% will be subsidized by the state. As a result, it is expected that in 2017 about 2.2 billion AMD will be allocated for the purchase of agricultural machinery.
According to the Financial Rating of Banks and Credit Companies of Armenia prepared by IC ArmInfo, the volume of leasing operations in 2016 increased by 11%, amounting to 16.7 billion AMD. The main supplier of leasing services is the company ACBA Leasing, in the portfolio of which the agricultural sector accounts for only 3% of the investment.
