FSSAFEM - Producers Marketing Fund

  • The FSSAFEM Fund - it is the Producers Marketing Fund, is the part of the promotion of Farmers Producers Organization (FPO) Program. This is a loan facility of the USDA to help producers in acquiring capital and finance to start or expand their business. In order to qualify for loans of FSSAFEM Fund, producers need to fulfill certain eligibility criteria. Producers must have financial need. Producers should also not have been granted any other farm credit, and they should have been in operation for at least five years.
  • If you have certain farm lands, who are interested in promoting the FSSAFEM Fund as a way to raise funds for the production of the food we eat, then it is best that you take the help of a Producers Marketing Manager and register your farm land with the FSSAFEM. There are certain questions that have to be answered by the FSSAFEM. Questions like; what kind of capital do you want to raise? Do you want to obtain a bank loan or receive an unsolicited proposal from a private lender?
  • How many acres do you want to produce? What is your maximum production capacity? How much money would you need for capital? Will you be using the bank or private money to buy FSSAFEM Funds? A Producers Marketing Manager or FSAO can be of great help to you in answering these questions, so that you can answer them properly and get the help you need to succeed.
