Watch time: 4min 40sec

Thanks to a European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) financial instrument, Simone, a young cheese producer based in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region of Italy, was able to create a small dairy laboratory and buy all the necessary equipment. The Region’s Loan Fund helped him join the family business and maintain the tradition.

Set-up with EUR 93 million from the Rural Development Programme of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region and regional resources, the EAFRD Loan Fund has helped hundreds of farmers in the region to improve their production and become more competitive.
