The following statement was issued today by Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma regarding the company's efforts to assist those affected by wildfire:
"Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma is providing support through our Fire Loss Fund to local producers and fire departments who are in need. We have already donated to 5 local fire departments today and will continue to give funds out as needed. We will also be giving money and gas cards to truckers who are hauling hay to the area. Our application for this money is minimal and we can get money in people’s hands immediately. These funds are donated from several Farm Credit Associations, CoBank, and various individuals.
"In addition to the donation account, Farm Credit has a 1 year Fire Relief Loan for up to $25,000 with a minimal interest rate and no collateral requirements. With proof of significant fire damage, minimal financial information, and a satisfactory credit score we can process the loan quickly and have money into the producers hands in less than 48 hours.
"We also continue to deliver water, snacks, and other essentials to fire departments battling the fire in our area.
"If anyone is interested in donating funds or supplies, they can contact us at any of our locations."
