"The difference between the grant program of WWF and CITI Fund from government initiatives to support entrepreneurship - in its environmental dimension, - says Mikhail Paltsyn, project coordinator of WWF-Russia's Altai-Sayanckom ecoregion. - Priority was given to projects of local residents, implementation of which will not damage the fragile nature of the Altai Mountains, with an emphasis on people in remote villages in the habitats of rare species such as the Altai mountain sheep argali or endangered snow leopard. Support was beginning businessmen, as well as the poorest segments of the population who would like to start a business but do not know how to do this and can not get even a small loan from a bank. "...
Environmental effects the project will be evaluated only after 5-6 years - after a considerable number of local residents have a chance to obtain legal income.
