Who is our client

CAGSA’s business is the origination of grain through the sale of inputs and services to agricultural producers. Through its network of 96 offices located in five provinces in Argentina, the company directly reaches 13,500 producers (23% of Argentine producers with 50% of productive hectares) and through the sale of inputs and services originates 9% of the total Argentine harvest. CAGSA is the second grain originator in Argentina and its access to producers distinguishes the company from other actors in the local market.

Funding objective

FMOs USD 100 million syndicated pre-export A/B Loan will be used to finance the company’s working capital needs related to its farmer financing and export activities.

Why we fund this project

CAGSA is a key player in the Argentinean agribusiness sector that reaches directly 13,500 farmers in the country with inputs and services. CAGSA has grown from a company of 140 employees in 2001 to 1400 employees in 2014. Thanks to their extensive in-land network and direct relationships with farmers CAGSA has a unique market position and plays an important role in the value chain. CAGSA’s role as a grain originator connecting producers with world markets strongly fits FMO's goals of optimizing agribusiness value chains.
