This research attempts to reveal the level of utilization of European funds by the smallholder farmers in rural areas in South-western Bulgaria, their problems and levels of satisfaction by the administrative services they receive. The survey was held in the spring of 2013. It collects data directly from the beneficiaries of these European programs. For the purpose of the survey data was collected through interviews with key participants with the help of local assistants. Topics like: potential corruption, problems in completing documents, administrative services quality and others were investigated. The research is focused on a small rural-mountainous area in the Western Rhodopes. The results and conclusions could be a good base for improving the work of national administration in the area. The results revealed some problems that could be overcome.
