Podcast Episode: Farm Financing: Non-Traditional Models
Part one of a two-part series that focuses on farm financing. When farmers are looking to purchase land, expand operations and make capital improvements where do they turn? This episode focuses on the increasingly popular non-traditional routes; microloans and crowdfunding.
Female Farmer Project Founder, Audra Mulkern and co-host Kate Doughty talk to both Kiva and Barnraiser about their efforts to support women in agriculture and entrepreneurs. We also meet two women farmers/entrepreneurs who have successfully navigated these alternative financing models.
Hosts, Audra Mulkern and Kate Doughty
