In our work we analysed opinions of reasons and signs of economic weakness of villages. The respondents´ opinions of possibilities how to improve the economic weakness of villages and the importance of sources of funding in this article. LFA areas are evaluated as less favoured areas. When we globally evaluate economic weakness of villages we have demonstrated that with increasing number of people living in the village the perception of the village as economically weak is reduced. The greatest cause of economic weakness of villages is considered a high proportion of elderly people and low share of university educated people and poor transport accessibility. Definitely the greatest demonstration of this weakness is the aging population. Options to improve the economic situation of most villages are perceived in strengthening tourism, transport service and services. Analysis of sources of financing for villages showed that the most common source of financing are own resources followed by resources from EU funds, ministries and government. Cooperation with the private sector or other sources of funding are negligible. Today European funds seem to be increasingly important. More than ¾ population consider this source of funding very important.
