ACBA-Credit Agricole Bank has launched an ACBA Business Partner Loan+ service. The press service of the Bank has told ArmInfo that this service is for the legal entities, which have business loans in other banks and credit companies but at the same time need new funds without spending additional time.


The source says that the new product has the following key advantages: the Bank conducts no financial or economic analysis of the enterprise to make a decision to issue a loan; the Bank makes the decision to issue the loan within an hour after the application is submitted; in case of the annuity method of loan repayment, the Bank provides the borrower with extra loan funds; the issue of the loan needs minimum documents; the borrowers are not required to spend money on property appraisal and insurance. The Loan+ is provided for 12-72 months at an interest rate starting from 8% p.a. The loan is provided in AMD, USD and EUR. In case of a collateral, the maximum amount of the loan is 14 mln AMD, $35 thsd or 28 thsd EUR.  The maximum amount of an unsecured loan is 3 mln AMD, $7.5 thsd or 6 thsd EUR. The legal entities, which apply to ACBA-Credit Agricole Bank before 10 August 2014 and open a current account at the Bank, will get an opportunity to make use of the ACBA ON-LINE system free of charge for a year, to receive a free Visa Business Card and to use it without paying any fee for the card servicing for a year; to receive an additional free Visa Business card; to receive a loan or a credit line for import/export stimulation at 8.99% p.a.


To note, two more banks offer a similar product in the market of financial services, namely, Ameriabank and INECOBANK, however, they provide it to SME borrowers only, unlike ACBA-Credit Agricole Bank.  Ameriabank does it within the frames of the Boomerang campaign, and INECOBANK - within the frames of the Easy Loans campaign.


According to the data of the Financial Rating of Armenian Banks prepared by ArmInfo, by the results of the 1Q 2014, ACBA-Credit Agricole Bank was the second at the banking market of Armenia by the size of credit portfolio. It increased the given indicator by 7,5% versus  1Q 2013 - up to 191.5 billion AMD. In general, the bank directed 70.8 billion AMD credits in the economy or 37% out of the credit portfolio of the bank.

As for the assets, the bank is in the TOP-5. It ensured growth by 4,6% - up to 264,6 billion AMD. According to the results of 2013, net profit of the bank amounted to 5.1 billion AMD, by 24,4% versus 2012.


To recall, "ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE BANK" CJSC was founded in 1996 within the framework of the European Union’s TACIS program by the model of European cooperative banks. Initially, activity of the bank was targeted to financing rural economies of Armenia. Since 1999 the bank has started providing loans to small and medium enterprises, since 2001 - consumer loans and since 2003 - education loans.


At present the bank provides varied universal banking services:  opening and service of banking accounts, funds transfer, issuance of personal check books, currency exchange, issuance of bank guarantees, documentary credits, trade, agricultural, collateral, mortgage, consumer loans, as well as loans for education, repairs and heating, issuance and service of VISA international plastic cards and domestic ArCA, reception of household running costs, system management via ACBA ON-Line. In September 2006 the French Credit Agricole Banking Group purchased 28% shares of the Agricultural Cooperative Bank of Armenia [ACBA Bank], and the ACBA Bank was renamed to ACBA Credit Agricole Bank. The bank has 50 branches (including the Head office):  12 - in Yerevan, the rest in the 10 marzes of Armenia.
