More than 80% of the sales of the Company are exported to EU, Turkey and Asia.

Funding objective

Why we fund this project

FMO supports farming in Moldova in general and an agribusiness player in the country by funding Trans-Oil Group’s seasonal working capital needs and help Moldova earn hard currency. In this way, FMO will contribute to reducing hunger, poverty and supporting economic growth.
