The head of the Bank of Development of the Republic of Belarus Syarhei Rumas says the family capital will encourage families to have more kids.

Our country keeps allocating money for the family capital programme, head of the Bank of Development of the Republic of Belarus Syarhei Rumas told Euroradio.

“We will receive 8.65 million dollars in June and we are starting to consider projects,” he noted.

The temporary family capital programme has been introduced this year. It will be in force until December 31, 2019. Families will get $10 thousand for the third child (or more children). The family will get the money only when the child turns 18 years old.

The money was allocated to the first 116 families in the middle of May – $1 million 150 thousand.
