The State Bank branch in the province then studied the status quo of the breeders in the area and instructed the agriculture bank to help the local breeders monetarily so as to fast stabilize farm produce and develop the breeding industry.
The Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development will in turn submit reports to the State Bank on methods of implementing assistance, latest by October 1.
