As such, the beneficiaries will be needy forest-planters and farmers. The Vietnam Bank for Social Policies will lend them credit without requiring collateral.

Households obtaining preferential loans to plant trees can acquire a maximum sum of 15 million VND (672.30 USD) per hectare, with durations calculated based on production time and lasting less than two decades.
