This Fund, together with the agricultural bank, provides resources and credits to small farmers. Legislation affecting both public and private banks requires banks to provide credit to farmers at a reasonable interest rate. In addition, there are funds and banks specific to the agricultural sector that provide low-interest or zero-interest loans.
