Producers attending the North Queensland Field Days in Townsville can meet with their local QRAA Client Liaison Officers to find out how partnering with QRAA can help them make a start in farming, improve productivity and work towards drought recovery.

QRAA’s Client Liaison Officers for the North and Far North and Gulf regions, Peter Crowley and Sam Spina, will be at the event from 18 – 19 May to discuss the range of financial assistance available from QRAA for local producers.

"QRAA offers a range of low interest loans for Queensland’s primary producers that can improve the productivity of their operations, assist in farm succession, expand their business or assist with drought recovery,” Peter said.

QRAA’s loans currently have interest rates as low as 2.71 per cent and, with no set up fees, no exit fees, no hidden costs and joint lending with your bank available, they are an attractive option for producers looking to improve their farming business.

Peter says that many producers in the North Queensland region have already experienced the benefits that the low interest loans provide.

“To date this financial year, more than $15 million has been provided in low interest loans to producers in Queensland’s North, Far North and Gulf regions. This is a considerable financial investment in the region and demonstrates that QRAA is providing lasting benefits for farming businesses in North Queensland,” he said.

Producers are urged to not self-assess their own eligibility for the range of loans available, but instead visit the QRAA stand at the Field Days (site B3) to talk about their individual situation and eligibility requirements.

"Sam and I will be available to discuss loan requirements, terms and conditions and the application process or, if they prefer, producers can make an appointment with one of us on-farm at a time that suits them," Peter said.

For further information contact QRAA on Freecall 1800 623 946 or visit www.qraa.qld.gov.au.

The Sustainability and First Start Loans are initiatives of the Queensland Government’s Primary Industry Productivity Enhancement Scheme administered by QRAA.

The Drought Concessional Loans and Drought Recovery Concessional Loans Schemes are funded by the Australian Government and delivered by QRAA.
