Accordingly, the MOF will re-lend this credit to the Việt Nam Association of People’s Credit Funds (VAPCF) under preferential conditions.

The credit then will be allocated for individuals, households and private businesses trading in rural areas with the aim of encouraging them to invest in production and develop agricultural economy.

Apart from the credit, AFD also provide a non-refundable aid of €0.5 million for VAPCF and local People’s Credit Funds in order to strengthen financial management, administrative management and supervision at international standards so that the credit will be used safely and effectively.
