Ivica’s story: microloans to boost organic blueberry production

Watch time: 2min 22sec

Ivica is the proud owner of OPG Babojelić, a family farm dedicated to producing Haskap berries. Thanks to an EAFRD-backed loan from HAMAG BICRO, the farm was able to modernise its facilities and offer its clients a new range of products. With this new investment, no parts of these nutrient-rich berries are wasted, the best berries are sent straight to market, the imperfect ones turned into juice and the leftover skins made into jam!
