Fortunately your application with Akitpan contains some of the same information you’ll need for other funders; and our staff and the Intertribal Agriculture Council Staff, are happy to assist you in seeking funding from other sources such as: your local CDFI, the Farm Service Agency, your local banks, Farm Credit Cooperatives, etc. Please call or email for more information.
LOAN VS INVESTMENT
Akiptan, being a Native CDFI, has the unique ability to develop loan programs that can truly benefit Natives in Agriculture.
Akiptan is able to provide a typical loan where a certain amount of money is borrowed and repaid back over several years. But, Akiptan is also able to provide a loan that allows for upfront capacity growth by “Investing” in your operation with an Interest Only payment option for several years before repaying the principal.
