Head of PCCB in Manyara Holle Makungu made the warning yesterday here when addressing a news conference.
According to him, all farmers who took tractor loans under the National Development Corporation (NDC) in 2018 should repay them and not otherwise.
“There are some people who have been misleading farmers that the loans of tractors should not be repaid which is not true. These tractors were issued to the farmers as part of the government’s plans to support modern and commercial farming and take farmers out of the poverty trap,” he said.
He said that tractor loans amounting 7.5bn/- were issued to farmers in the districts of Babati, Hanang’, Simanjiro, Mbulu and Kiteto.
“PCCB has been given the task to ensure that the farmers repay the loans and the exercise is currently going on well in various areas. Those who are misleading the farmers should be very careful because we will not entrain the behaviour,” Makungu said. Read More...epaper.ippmedia.com
