Albanian PM invites farmers to apply for financing

Tirana, 16 September 2016/ Independent Balkan News Agency

Prime Minister Edi Rama has invited the farmers of Malesi e Madhe to submit their projects in order to benefit from the fund of agricultural guarantee, as the government in cooperation with EBRD have put 300 million euros at their disposal.

“The state is capable to act as a guarantor for their funds. The state is able to assist all of those who submit a project through the agency for rural development and the latter will address banks to help them. This is a new project, where the state will help farmers to obtain low interest loans to make investments”, Rama said.

Rama also admitted the problems that citizens in urban areas face.

“I’m aware of the problems that these citizens have. I also know that our program could not reach many areas and communities. On the other hand, I am convinced that this transformation cannot be made overnight”, Rama declared. /
