Alabama Ag Credit Lends a Hand

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama Ag Credit, a rural lending cooperative serving 40 counties in South Alabama, continues to provide assistance to its borrowers and the rural communities it serves after the devastation caused by Hurricane Michael.

“As a part of the Farm Credit System, we were established to support agriculture and rural communities in good times and bad,” said Doug Thiessen, Alabama Ag Credit chief executive officer. “The day after the storm hit, and every day since, our priority has been reassuring our customers that we will be with them to help their operations recover.”

The association has contributed in excess of $50,000 towards recovery of the wiregrass agricultural community by donating to several organizations, taking supplies directly to those affected, and working with customers to help their operations through the tough recovery. While employees were on the road and on the phone checking on customers in the immediate days after the storm, Alabama Ag Credit has continued its support for the agricultural communities. Donations made by the co-op include $25,000 to the Alabama Farmers Federation’s relief fund and $15,000 to the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association relief fund. In addition, the co-op donated two semi-truck loads of drinking water to the American Red Cross.

Eight counties served by Alabama Ag Credit sustained major, and direct, damage from Hurricane Michael, resulting in more than $204 million in economic losses.
