NC Agricultural Finance Authority

Mission Statement

The North Carolina Agricultural Finance Authority (NCAFA) was established by the North Carolina General Assembly to provide credit to agriculture in local areas where it is not available at reasonable rates and terms. The mission applies to all aspects of agriculture; farming, processing, manufacturing and exporting.

Operating Procedure

Essentially operating as the North Carolina ‘Agricultural Bank’ NCAFA originates, services, and finances loans in the agricultural sector that would otherwise not be made. Using federal guarantees and secondary markets, state funds are leveraged with minimal risk of loss. Agricultural Development Bonds (tax-exempt) are issued for agribusiness firms.
