"A new program to help Croatia's poorest citizens tackle their debt and unfreeze blocked bank accounts went into effect on Feb. 2. The government is planning to spend up to $300 million on the program, titled 'fresh start', that will cancel the debt of Croatians who make less than $138 a month and have debts up to $5,100."

"The law affects more than 1% of Croatia's population of 4.4 million […]. Croatia recently entered its sixth year of recession, and is expected to experience weak economic growth this year."
