The lending operations are car
ried on through a dozen regional
federal intermediate credit banks,
535 local farmer-controlled pro
duction credit associations and oth
er privately-owned ' credit institu
tions. During 1937, these agencies loan
ed $449,566,000 to farmers to finance
virtually, every type of crop and
livestock production, marketing and
processing activity, says George M.
Brennan, commissioner of the inter
mediate credit banks.
Where a few years ago-farmers
able to obtain short-term credit
paid interest rates as high as eight
and 10 per cent, borrowers from
the federal agencies paid only 5 per
cent on an annual basis, or 2x per
cent for six months.
Brennan said this loan business
netted the banks a profit of . $1,
100,000 after charging off losses and
payment of all expenses.
