Facility Borrower Program

The Facility Borrowers Program allows a development facility or renewal fuel production facility borrower, qualified by the Missouri Agriculture and Small Business Development Authority, to apply for a reduced loan rate. Funds may be used to finance new costs associated with facilities producing either a good derived from an agricultural commodity or using a process to produce a good derived from an agricultural product.

Facilities producing an energy source derived from a renewable, domestically grown organic compound capable of powering machinery, including an engine or power plant, and any by-product derived from such energy source may also receive funds.
