Rural Youth Loan Program
Here is information about the Rural Youth Loan Program available to 4-H members. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) makes operating loans of up to $5,000 to eligible individual rural youths age 10 through 20 to finance income-producing, agriculture-related projects. The project must be of modest size, educational, and initiated, developed and carried out by rural youths participating in 4-H clubs, FFA, or a similar organization. For more information, leaders should contact their local FSA Office or visit http://www.fsa.usda.gov.
A one page fact sheet is available at: http://www.fsa.usda.gov/Internet/FSA_File/loanyouth.pdf.
Farm Credit has a similar program available for youth loans! You will find information on their website http://www.myaglender.com/youth-loans_5152_ct.aspx.
