What our clients are saying...
"By taking advantage of the APP we were able to dramatically reduce our bank and trade debt and save thousands in interest and fees....and ACC staff was there with timely advice as we re-structured. Our COGS is down with targeted production made possible by APP funding. ACC staff make the application process smooth and professional. They are a pleasure to work with!"

"Having utilized the $100,000 Interest Free portion of the Advanced Payments Program administered by ACC for the past number of years, I am able to market my crops in a manner to maximize MY financial bottom line. The fee is negligible especially now that I can roll harvested crop into the Storage portion of the program ‘fee free’ also! New changes with multi-year applications make this a no-brainer for any serious grain and oilseed producer."

“I really love this program…Even if you go over the interest-free it's still a good [interest] rate...I can increase my operation 30% almost per year now!"
