Over two thousand projects prepared by young Bulgarian farmers will not receive financing under the EU Rural Development Operational Programme and those who took bank loans to finance the projects are to face bankruptcy, announced the informal Bulgarian organization entitled Cause Young Farmer. For over one year now young Bulgarian farmers have been hoping that their projects would be approved under Measure 112 -Setting Up Young Farmers in Europe. The farmers prepared over 2,700 projects and most of them took bank loans in order to finance them, as the former Bulgarian government promised to provide access to Measure 112. Now it turns out that most young Bulgarians do not have money to pay back their bank loans. The measure is to come into effect in January next year and its budget is still unclear. Thus, some 2,100 projects will fail and their authors would not be able to apply for money under this program anymore.
