Barter trade operations have become popular among small and medium-sized Brazilian growers for their agility and simplicity, as it makes funding more feasible by using future production as payment. Santander Bank recently consolidated Gira as a new branch dedicated to developing and stabilizing this payment relationship.

Gira began its trajectory as an ultra-modern receivables management system able to minimize the risks of the agribusiness credit chain, operating safely due to the exclusive legal, agronomic, and environmental compliance service, proven to be efficient for guaranteed payments. Its platform was the first in the region to implement geolocation of production areas for gathering and analyzing agronomic data plus monitoring production on farms reliant on barter.

Today, in a new phase, Gira is part of the Santander ecosystem. As a relevant operator of barter, Gira brings new solutions so that producers can more efficiently purchase the inputs they need, as well as market their production.

Partnered with Farmers Edge, Gira will provide its users with funding resources through barter operations. This synergy offers a new frontier in trust and expansion to Brazilian banks and farmers alike.

“Our unique digital infrastructure and FarmCommand platform will help to minimize risk for lenders and empower Brazilian growers,” said Farmers Edge founder and CEO Wade Barnes. “By allowing lenders to access field-centric data that our proprietary tools collect, farmers can borrow capital to finance their growing season, improve land, and scale their business — all while using our solutions to boost yields, streamline processes, and grow more sustainably in one of the world’s largest food exporting nations.”

“We are creating an integrated environment for risk management in agriculture,” said Barnes. “As the local pioneer in this field, Gira is the ideal partner for creating the transparency and visibility we need to fuel the digital transformation of Brazilian agribusiness. Now farmers can match the needs of their operation to the right tools, and banks can lend at favorable rates to help their country’s growers prosper.”
