Emergency farm loan requests due Dec. 26
Farmers and ranchers in Marion County have until Dec. 26 to file applications for emergency disaster loans.
Farm Service Agency loan manager Eric Guenther said that those needing farm credit assistance as the result of a snowstorm from Feb. 20 to Feb. 23, should send their applications before the deadline.
“Loans covering physical and/or production losses are scheduled for repayment as rapidly as feasible, consistent with the applicant’s reasonable ability to pay,” Guenther said.
The current interest rate is 2.125 percent, but is subject to monthly changes until the loan is approved.
Applications should be sent to 3020 W. 18th Ave., Suite A, in Emporia.
