FFA & 4-H Youth Ag Loan Program

In support of our area youth in agriculture, Farmers Bank of Northern Missouri is proud to make agricultural loans available to FFA and 4-H members in our market areas of northern Missouri and southern Iowa. In addition to providing financial assistance, the program can also be a financial education tool. Students will learn to evaluate their enterprise performance by preparing financial statements and cash flows with their loan officer. 

FFA & 4-H Loans are subject to the following:

  • Interest rate is determined by subtracting the student's GPA from a base interest rate. For base rate information, call one of the Farmers Bank of Northern Missouri branches.
  • Up to a $10,000-line limit can be available for applicable projects. Amounts greater than $10,000 can be reviewed on a case by case basis.
  • Repayment period is dependent on loan purchase.
  • Student must have a qualified co-applicant, unless they are 18 and credit worthy.
  • Program is available throughout student's eligibility to participate in FFA & 4-H.
  • Loan Officer will make project visit(s) with the student to discuss how the project is doing, things to change and possible ways to expand

Grades based on an 11-point scale will be converted to a 4.0 scale.
