2 June 2016: Meet with QRAA's Bradley Whittington at Richmond Field Days 10-11 June

2 June 2016

Producers attending the Richmond Field Days event have a perfect opportunity to learn how partnering with QRAA can provide lasting benefits for their agricultural business.

QRAA’s Client Liaison Officer Bradley Whittington, is intent on meeting with as many attendees as possible - to spread the word about how QRAA’s financial assistance can help them make a start in agribusiness, improve productivity or work towards drought recovery.

“Producers are impressed when I tell them our loans currently have interest rates as low as 2.71 per cent. The fact we have no set up fees, no exit fees, no hidden costs and can take a second mortgage behind their bank makes them a very attractive option,” Bradley said.

QRAA is delighted to see that so many North Queensland producers have already benefited from the low interest loans.

“More than $19.3 million in low interest loans has been provided to producers in the North Queensland region this financial year. This is a considerable financial investment in the area and we feel rightly proud to know that QRAA is helping producers achieve long-lasting benefits,” he said.

Producers are urged to not self-assess their own eligibility for the range of loans available, but instead visit the QRAA stand, which is being shared with AgForce at the Field Days, to talk about their individual situation and clarify the application process.

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

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

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.
