The Arakan Farmers’ Union (UWSA) on March 21 demanded the exemption of agricultural loans for farmers in conflict areas in Arakan State. The request was made at a press conference at the Arakan Land Survey and Farmers Press Conference held at Ariyan Hall in Sittwe. During the monsoon season last year, paddy was delayed and other problems were difficult to repay. U Maung Maung Gyi, a farmer from the top village, said. “The loan is not really repayable. “Forced repayments, you can make a small payment and pay only the interest.” The statement issued by the Arakan Farmers Union included five points and also demanded that farmers in the free-fall areas also postpone agricultural loans until next season. It also provides technology for farmers. He also urged the government to provide necessary assistance.
The statement is intended to help farmers understand the real situation on the ground. Farmers, farmers, fisheries, farmers and fisheries formed by the Rakhine State Parliament can only pay interest on farmers who are unable to repay their loans and continue paying off the loans. Aung Win, a representative of the state forest and irrigation committee, said. “The government is not easy to reduce loans. “It is best if you can only pay interest rates and then continue to lend to them,” he said. In Rakhine State, Kyauktaw, Mrauk Oo, Minbya, Buthidaung, Rakhine State Farmers in Rathendaung and Ponnagyun townships are having difficulty with agricultural loans, and monsoon paddy loans will have to be repaid in April.
