Increase profitability while increasing soil fertility
Sustainable farming practices increase the amount of organic carbon in the topsoil improving the environment for earthworms and other organisms. Consequently, the soil becomes more resistant to draughts and provides better conditions for your plants.
With 0% financing, you can expand your sustainable practices without financial burden of working with traditional financial institutions.
Reduced tillage soil management
(no-till, minimum tillage or strip tillage)
40 ha + of arable land
(Your farm needs to employ reduced tillage soil management practices in at least 40 hectares of land)
What is Sustainable Farming
Sustainable agriculture includes no-till, strip-till, and minimum tillage soil management practices, as well as crop rotation, cover crops switching from chemical to organic fertiliser, and reduced fuel consumption.
By employing sustainable agriculture in your farm, you generate carbon certificates and are therefore entitled to a 0% interest loan. Additionally, farmers will receive proceeds from the sale of carbon certificates for one year after the loan repayment.
What are Carbon Certificates
Carbon certificates are tradable units, each representing the removal of one tonne of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Farmers participating in carbon farming practices generate certificates by storing carbon in the soil.
1 Tonne of CO2 Removed = 1 Carbon Certificate
Regenerative farming practices are a prerequisite for drawing down the excess CO2 from the atmosphere. Our scientists make precise calculations of carbon absorbed in the soil to create carbon certificates.
Through cooperating with HeavyFinance, farmers can benefit from the positive impact of reducing emissions while also getting 0% interest financing and returns from the sale of the certificates.
Real life example
From polluter to sequester
Meet farmer Donatas, a sustainable farmer. In stages, he has been implementing regenerative land management across all of his 330 hectares of farmland since 2017.
To employ regenerative agricultural practices throughout the fields, the farmer applied for a 105.000€ loan from the HeavyFinance to purchase a disc cultivator Carrier XL 425-625.
HeavyFinance offered him 0% interest Green Loan to expand sustainable farming practices. Donatas was also provided with tailored repayment schedule to make largest instalments after the harvesting.
After the farmer repays the 0% agricultural loan, he will start earning additional revenue from the sale of carbon credits generated due to his sustainable farming practices.
What Our Farmers Say

Why choose green loan?
Green loan allows farmers to get 0% rate financing to implement sustainable soil management practices. It therefore provides more security to farmers when switching to sustainable practices and increases profitability of the farm.
Are green loans less risky?
A study of Moody's analyzed over 8,000 loans found out that sustainable loans are considerably less risky, meaning, farmers are less likely to get into major financial difficulties while repaying a sustainable loan.
