In order to be eligible, it must be determined that credit is not available from other lenders to continue normal operations and have reasonable prospects of success. The loans may be made for the purchase of feed, seed, fertilizer, or for other essential farm and home operating costs. The funds cannot be used to refinance existing debts. The interest rate is three per cent. Repayment schedules depend upon the purpose of the loan. For example, funds loaned for crop production will ordinarily be repaid from the crop harvested or sold.
