Receiving documents for the budget program “Providing loans to farmers», which administers the State Farmers support fund of Ukraine, has been started

«We invite farmers to apply. For the convenience of using online Ukrderzhfond (udf.gov.ua) we have developed a user-friendly interface, which contains the complete spectrum of information about submission of documents from contacts to sample documents. Of course, the amount of money which was laid last year for this year is small, but I emphasize that the Government has submitted a proposal for the next year of UAH 5.5 billion.

 Innovations of this year, which are implemented as part of the strategy of "3 + 5" is to increase the size of the support from 250 thousand UAH up to 500 thousand UAH, and extension a deadline for receiving applications for farmers from 15 to 30 days.  Priority will be given to farmers who process not more than 500 hectares, provide laying of perennial plants and produces organic products,» - said the Minister of Agrarian Policy T.Kutovyy.

 The key point for us is also to minimize corruption risks, that’s why in allocating funding , we work closely with NGO, particularly this year in the regional commissions, the Association of Farmers and Private Landowners will have five representatives, and all-Ukrainian commission will consist of representatives of the NGO "Association of farmers and private landowners of Ukraine", the Agrarian Union of Ukraine, the Agricultural Service Cooperatives Union of Ukraine, National Association of Agricultural Advisory Services of Ukraine and Federation of Organic Movement of Ukraine. As a consequence of making a decision about whom to help, the public will have a majority,"- added T. Kutovoy
