Farm Credit’s dedication to supporting a strong and thriving agricultural industry is a nationwide commitment. Our lending institutions across the country support young and beginning farmers’ success every day, whether by helping them learn the financial skills they need to run a farm business or by providing financing that meets their unique needs.
Farm Credit also supports the future of agriculture by partnering with organizations such as FFA. Its mission, to “make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education,” makes the partnership an obvious choice. Working with FFA, Farm Credit invests in the next generation of farmers and ranchers, as well as future Farm Credit leaders. Leili Ghazi, Western Region President at CoBank, explains, “FFA students develop life skills and leadership skills that make them career ready, college ready and the perfect pool of candidates to look at as we build talent within our organizations.”
