FSA Youth Loans!

Our May 21 workshop on FSA Youth Loans was very successful!  FSA Youth loans provide up to $5,000 to help youth between the ages of 10 and 20 finance small ag-related and income producing projects.  If you missed the workshop, but would be interested in one of the follow-up workshops, please email rifarm@rifb.org or call the office at 401-385-3339 to get on the list.    Check out our page for more information on Youth Loans.
