Farm Service Agency (FSA)
Loans to Individual Rural Youths

FSA makes loans to individual rural youths to establish and operate income-producing projects of modest size in connection with their participation in 4-H clubs, Future Farmers of America, and similar organizations.

Each project must be part of an organized and supervised program of work. The project must be planned and operated with the help of the organization adviser, produce sufficient income to repay the loan, and provide the youth with practical business and educational experience.

Who may borrow?

To qualify for a loan, an applicant must:
  • be a citizen of the United States (or a permanent resident), which includes Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands;
  • be between 10 and 20 years old;
  • live in a town of less than 10,000 people;
  • be unable to obtain a loan from other sources; and
  • conduct a modest income-producing project in a supervised program of work, as outlined above.
Applicants must also be capable of planning, managing, and operating the project under guidance and assistance from a project adviser. The project adviser must recommend the project and the loan, and agree to provide adequate supervision.

What are some possible projects?
These loans may be used to finance nearly any kind of income-producing project. Some common projects include livestock and crop production, lawn and garden services, repair shops, and roadside stands.
