The government-guaranteed scheme for loans to agricultural businesses (BL) has been expanded due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. This will allow agricultural and horticultural businesses that are in a healthy position and are affected by this crisis to have continued access to financing. Expanding the BL scheme will allow healthy companies that are experiencing liquidity problems to benefit from a government-guaranteed bridging loan (BL-C). This additional module became effective on 18 March 2020 and will remain available until 1 April 2021.
