Farmer Card Management System

Long-term credit and harvest season repayment: Industry leading solutions that make a difference

The farmer (agricultural) card is an instrument to access many banking products nowadays, which is a convenience for the customer, and provides an easy-to-manage, effective infrastructure to the bank. Agricultural cards are agricultural credit-based cards that are designed to suit the needs and repayment alternatives of farmers and landowners. Payment in installments or deferred payment are of convenience to the target customers. The special limit allocated to the customer enables the farmer to use the loan intended for agricultural purchases and production through special transactions possible on various terminals, and with special pricing schemes for those transactions.
Farmer Card limits may be allocated in addition to the regular limit of the card, and can be used only in special transactions intended for the purpose. This enables the management of two discrete limits on the same card, maintaining the regular credit card application as before, while providing an additional function with different interest rates and repayment options of agricultural cards.
Uses of agricultural loan are presented to the client with a discrete statement. The dates on which such statements will be issued can be defined with a parametric calendar that is different from the regular credit card statement calendars.
