*FSA Direct Borrower Certification:  The AGAware® Full Workshop is certified in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina for USDA’s FSA Direct Borrower Education Certification. FSA Direct Borrower Education Certification is the education required by USDA FSA Direct Loan Borrowers within two years of obtaining a FSA Direct Loan or in advance of obtaining this type loan from FSA. The FSA Direct loans option is a lending resource provided by USDA that is an option when other sources of credit are not available and is at a very reasonable interest rate. FSA Direct Borrowers are required to be graduated to other lenders eventually as the operation sees success. AgSouth offers this Certification program through AGAware in order to give an opportunity to move to Farm Credit eventually if eligibility and credit requirements are met.
