The “productive” structures mentioned receive budget funds to cover the formal money costs of their formation. Beneficiaries reimburse these funds into the Cooperative Local Development Fund set up, usually over a period  of 4-5 years. The funds made available to them are interest-free. The repayments are made according to the real possibilities of those involved. Decisions as to the rate of repayment are made by users themselves during the Workshops where the structures are set up. The reimbursements are financed by the sale, for a certain period of time, of part of the production for formal money outside the project area, and, in the case of waste recycling activities, by the “export” for formal money of solid waste which is not recyclable in the project area.
