Banks have money to loan, with USDA help

By Larry Dreiling

One of the big lies currently being spoken about the U.S. economy is that things are uncertain.

Will there be a double dip recession? Will jobs come back? Will the dollar come back stronger?

Given half a chance, however, there is certitude in rural America that things are getting better.

Leave it to rural bankers, who say they have money to lend and with some help from U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development programs are willing to really put money where their mouths are.

The nation's ag bankers have been told to make use of USDA-RD's Business and Industry Guaranteed Loan Program‹and use it for all it's worth.
