International Lessons on Financing Agricultural Modernization

Inadequate supply of credit. One of the biggest limitations of financing agricultural modernization and development in China, is the inability of credit services to meet consumer demand. The loan products supplied by commercial financial institutions are usually characterized by high entrance standards, complex requirements, and complicated application procedures. Most loan products have very short terms, low credit lines, and inflexible payment schedules. These limitations make them unsuitable for agriculture, which is characterized by long earning cycles and large upfront costs. They could not meet the sector’s demands of working capital.
