Matija's story: a new peach orchard to boost production

Watch time: 2.5 mins

Thanks to an EAFRD-backed loan from HAMAG BICRO, Croatian peach farmer, Matija Kovačić was able to invest in specialised farming equipment to tend to his fruits, all the while saving up to 40% on fuel costs.  This ensured that he and his family had the best year of production to date.
