HBL’s pivotal role in the growth of rural agriculture

Habib Bank Limited (HBL) is one of the few financial institutions, which caters to farmers financing need and has played a pivotal role in the development of the rural agriculture market. With the distinction of being the largest commercial bank in Pakistan, HBL has influenced thousands of lives in the farming communities across the country and is committed to improving the agricultural sector’s growth.

At HBL, loans to farmers are mostly structured on a revolving basis. They are only charged on the amounts utilized, which reduces the burden on them. Furthermore, the repayments are matched with the cropping cycle and the cash receipt of proceeds from the crops. This enables the farmers to pay off their debt to the bank when they have the funds available.

Crop loan insurance option

HBL has also joined hands with the insurance industry for the launch of Crop Loan Insurance, protecting the borrowers against loss of crops on arising from rain, floods, disease etc. In case of a calamity the farmers’ crops are insured and their losses are adjusted against the insurance coverage.
