    Brazil subsidized loans for the 2018/19 agriculture program will reach US$ 58bn

    The government’s farm program offers subsidized loans to finance agricultural commodities and make investments such as in silos and agricultural machinery.

    Brazil's Agriculture Ministry plans to increase funds available to finance the farm sector, an official announced, noting that a decline in inflation has allowed the government to boost funding in a country that is the world’s largest exporter of staples like soybeans and coffee.
