Julien’s and Marie’s story – Organic farming for a more sustainable future

Watch time: 3min 27sec

For Marie Lauret and Julien Navailles, based in Bidache, the Alter'NA guarantee loan was the stepping stone they needed to enter the agricultural sector and start their organic production.

Thanks to the guarantee loan they were able to finance their production greenhouses, market gardening tools as well as a storage building for their crops.

The Alter'NA guarantee fund, set up with EUR 36 million from Nouvelle-Aquitaine regional funds, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD), and the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI, Juncker Plan), has already helped hundreds of farmers in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region to implement sustainable agriculture projects.
