  • Loans are granted selectively for specific users and at relatively unfavorable conditions.
  • State support to agriculture and villages in last 20 years is conducted through the instrument of the agricultural budget and through resources of development funds at the level of Republic of Serbia and Vojvodina.

In goal of better utilization of pour resources which are available for financing of agriculture and villages, from extremely importance is that village inhabitants and agricultural producers to be informed about basic categories related to the finance, loans, insurance (i.e. to be financially literate), as well to be computer literate. Connections with NBS, AETS and other state organs for agriculture and village at all levels will increase the level of professional development and reducing financial and informatical (il) literacy.
