Unicaja Banco and Asaja Toledo collaborate again in a new CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) campaign to facilitate the processing and management of these subsidies to farmers and livestock breeders in the province.
Under the agreement, signed by Unicaja Banco’s Commercial Banking Regional Manager in Castilla-La Mancha, José Ignacio Martínez, and by the Head of Asaja Toledo, Blanca Corroto, the members of Asaja Toledo will be able to use the organization’s specialized staff and resources to process their application, while, at the same time, will have access to the financial advantages provided by Unicaja Banco, such as the advance payment of the aids.
Blanca Corroto has remarked Unicaja Banco’s support to farmers and livestock breeders in the province, with measures such as the advance payment of the CAP subsidies. It has also highlighted ‘the work carried out by Asaja Toledo technical staff, both in the advice -to solve queries related to CAP regulations-, and the in the processing of the dossiers to apply for agricultural subsidies’.
José Ignacio Martínez has highlighted ‘Unicaja Banco’s commitment to Toledo and Castilla-La Mancha and its strong support to the agricultural sector in the region, one of its main areas of action’. He has also pointed out the joint work and the collaboration between the financial institution and Asaja Toledo ‘to provide assistance to its members and to learn first-hand about their needs’.
Broad range of products and services
In this sense, Unicaja Banco offers the advance payment of the subsidy, in addition to a comprehensive range of specialized products and services under special conditions. Among them, specific financing lines aimed at launching new business projects, investing in improvements or in the acquisition of new agricultural machinery, as well as launching new crops, accessing more efficient machinery or expanding markets.
Likewise, and taking into account that each business, crop and farm has its own growth rates, the bank offers specific loans adapted to each need, such as, for example, those aimed at woody crops, which allow the expansion, renovation or diversification of this type of crops, which begin to be productive in the medium term.
At a time of profound changes for the sector, Unicaja Banco continues with its strong commitment to be the financial support that farmers and livestock breeders need to get the most of the new challenges and opportunities and to obtain the best performance from their work. In this sense, the bank puts at the disposal of farmers all its experience and works to reinforce specific financial services and to design new products to anticipate the needs of the sector's professionals.
