Who is our client

Van den Berg Asia Holding Ltd. Hong Kong (VDB) successfully produces and markets top quality cut flowers and potted plants in the Yiliang valley in South West China since 2007. With 18 hectares of advanced greenhouses VDB grows roses, anthuriums and other flowers selling to over 200 distributors all over China

Funding objective

Van den Berg will use the loan to set-up a new greenhouse complex in the Lufeng valley about 100 kilometers to the west of the city of Kunming. The proceeds will be used to build additional green houses, to install the steam infrastructure and lease land right.

Why we fund this project

The funding of FMO will enable van den Berg Asia to further develop its activities in China. The financing is attractive because of the development impact created by the investment. The greenhouse will offer structural employment opportunities in a rural environment, offering an alternative for people who might otherwise migrate to the city. The new investment also enables the client to reduce its impact and footprint; the greenhouses will be heated by excess heat from a nearby factory.
