Beef producers Helen and Paul Lovell used a QRIDA Sustainability Loan to purchase additional property and enhance their enterprise.
On a small property just off the Cunningham Highway about 35 kilometres west of Warwick in southern Queensland, the Cleary family is busy preparing bulls for auction thanks to a QRIDA Sustainability Loan.
Beef and pork producers Kym and Lance Baker accessed the Farm Business Analysis Assistance program through QRIDA which gave them the confidence to move forward in their rural enterprise.
"All of our water infrastructure and land development has been done through QRIDA’s Sustainability Loan."
"I think the resilience has been terrific and the support that everyone received has been nothing but extraordinary to get everyone back on their wheels."
We used the grant to replace all of the equipment we lost in the floods. The dishwasher, kitchen appliances, stock, everything we needed to get back up and running as soon as possible.
...financial assistance like the Extraordinary Disaster Assistance Recovery Grant is a big help and we are so grateful for QRIDA’s support.
The farm wouldn’t be up and running, the farm wouldn’t be employing the people, earning the money that it is – none of that would have happened without the money from QRIDA.
We don’t have family in the cattle industry, so it was quite difficult to get our foot in the door. With QRIDA and the help of our employers it has made our goals achievable.
