Long Term Loans

There are two attractive options for funding new investments in Brazil, with lower interest rates than market rates. So, even companies who already have the resources to invest should consider these options, since the interest rates are lower than the cost of equity.

Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES)
Applying for BNDES resources requires a business plan adapted to the banks form and an on time follow-up of the whole process, in which PROFIT has more then 20 years of experience.
The investment must be new (no change of ownership) and the client is responsible to present the collaterals required.

International Finance Corporation
IFC is the World Bank's branch for private sector funding, focusing on developing countries, also with very attractive interest rates and requiring a business plan as application.
