The NERPO, Mutual and Federal livestock purchase and insurance project.

NERPO man at work


NERPO are the custodians of the NERPO Livestock Credit scheme. The scheme is financed through funds from the national treasury. These funds are lent out to successful loan applicants. Applicants are screened by senior executive, from the province from where the applicant resides. Certain criteria are evaluated in this process e.g. :

- Is the person an active NERPO member ?
- Does the applicant have the necessary skills and knowledge to farm livestock ?
- The number of animals versus the carrying capacity of the applicants land ?
- Does the applicant have land, rental land or part of a viable and sustainable communal grazing area ?
- Is the necessary infrastructure in place and maintained in order to farm with the livestock ?


All livestock purchased through this structure are identified and registered onto the  GMPBasic system.
An affordable insurance package is provided for each and all such animals through the Mutual and Federal livestock insurance scheme for the farmer.
