This case study reviews the implementation of the EAFRD Revolving Fund for agriculture in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region in Italy.
With the financial contribution from the RDP, its own revolving resources and additional private contributions from financial intermediaries, the Fund provides subsidised loans for investments. These can be for processing, marketing and developing new agricultural products, as well as improving the performance and competitiveness of agricultural enterprises.
The financial instrument was set-up with a capital of EUR 93 million, of which EUR 16.1 million from the RDP. Loans are provided to final recipients through four local financial intermediaries.
