EU supports the recovery of entrepreneurs and farmers in Bosnia and Herzegovina from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic

Bosnia and Herzegovina

The EU4Business Recovery project, worth 13.7 million, will secure more than 1,000 jobs threatened by the pandemic, and at least 100 new jobs will be created. The project will support micro, small and medium-sized enterprises to continue in business and keep jobs, and will also focus on helping women entrepreneurs, young people and other vulnerable groups to start up their own businesses.

 

Alongside this initiative, the EU4AGRI Recovery project, worth 5 million, will provide direct support to farmers, businesses and rural tourism operators to develop long-term resilience in the sector, retain existing jobs and create new ones, especially for women and youth. The project will ensure the retention of more than 400 jobs, while creating at least 100 new jobs with a focus on the environment and sustainable agriculture. Additionally, the project will provide support for establishing 20 new innovative and environmentally responsible start-ups.

 

Grants for farmers and entrepreneurs will be provided through an open call for proposals.
