YOUTH LOAN & INVESTMENT

Native Youth are able to get a Loan or Investment through Akiptan that allows for the younger generations to start to grow their Agriculture Operation.

GENERAL LOAN & INVESTMENT

The Ownership and Operating Loan/Investment allows for operators to borrow up to $100,000 in order to build capacity for their operation. 

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.
