Individuals who wish to start and operate their own farms or make improvements to their existing farms can now make the most of dairy farm business loans. The reasons for taking out a loan like this can be to establish small dairy units that have two to four mulch cattle, to collect, process, and distribute milk, to establish a new medium or large dairy unit, to manufacture milk products, to construct cattle shad, or to buy crossbreed or improved mulch cattle.
For your dairy farm business, you will most likely incur expenses related to purchase of raw materials, dairy production processes, dairy product processing, dairy product storage, packaging, warehousing, etc. You would also incur costs associated with taking care of animal species that help in the production of dairy products.
A dairy farm business loan is a Working Capital Term Loan that can be availed by agriculture labourers, farmers, limited companies, SHGs, registered partnership firms, and dairy co-operative societies. The amount of money that is granted to applicants can range up to Rs. 100,000 for the hypothecation of live stocks. Loan amounts offered to customers can also exceed Rs. 100,000 for the hypothecation of live stocks, or land mortgage, or declaration as per the agricultural credit act, or collateral security of sufficient worth, or third party assurance if stipulated.
The profit margin for loans up to Rs. 100,000 is nil, and loans more than Rs. 100,000 provide a profit margin ranging from 15% to 25%. The rate of interest will differ based on the lender and the structure of the loan. The repayment period is usually between five and six years, and most lenders also provide a moratorium period of two to three months.
