In dairy farms in Japan, there is the case falling into such an immobilized debt that the disposable income cannot fill up for the amount of interest and principal repayment, and living expenditure for a long term. Special Loans for Livestock is an important aid package to get rid of an immobilized debt. However, conflicts occur in the process to get rid of an immobilized debt in not only dairy farms but also their supporting groups. Because it is basic to increase a disposable income by not new investment but cost cut, as a condition to lend Special Loans for Livestock. However, to get rid of an immobilized debt, a dairy farm may need minimum investment truly. This is the element which conflict occurs. In this report, we focused on the conflict of one dairy farm and his supporting groups, clarified such a mechanism that they overcame, and derived future lessons.
