We offer comprehensive business plans to support applications for financing to financial institutions with accurate facts presented in a professionally accepted format.

  • Financial institutions would appreciate the opportunity to finance a BEE initiative.
  • Accurate and up to date market information will be provided about the domestic and international pecan nut markets and the opportunities they present.
  • A discussion on the critical success factors for farming with pecan trees.
  • A detailed financial model will be provided that will include a summarised cash flow statement over a number of years.
  • Detail on the continued support you can expect from Pecans South Africa.

A vast amount of information on pecan farming can be obtained from our web site: www.pecannut.co.za under Orchard Management. This information is updated on a regular basis and is the most comprehensive online information base on pecan farming for the benefit of South African farmers.
