The complaint came from Agricultural and Cooperative Associations of Icolo e Bengo Municipality.

The Associations’ concern is expressed in a final document emerged from the end of the meeting, held on Friday and delivered to Angop Saturday.

To be eligible to get agricultural credit, the beneficiaries are required to report with ownership documents and surface rights, the source said, regretting that it is difficult to obtain such documents at the local Administration.

Local agricultural organisations considered this position negative to development of local agriculture and rural families.

In view of this situation, they said to be deprived of access to credits,  available at financial institutions since 2016.

Icolo e Bengo, with 39 agriculture associations, is located 60 km east of the country's capital, Luanda.
