Funds for farmers
THE Regional Investment Corporation launched in July offering government-funded, low interest loans to farmers in need. The RIC replaces the federal concessional loans scheme delivered by the Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority (QRIDA). The newly formed RIC will be holding information sessions in Charters Towers, Longreach, Emerald and Rockhampton in December. All information sessions start at 9.30am and finish at 11am. Bookings can be made via the website, www.ric.gov.au/events.
