The Agricultural and Small Business Development Authority administers a program that enables lenders to receive federally tax-exempt interest on loans made to beginning farmers. The tax savings are passed on to beginning farmers in the form of lower interest rates. A qualified borrower can borrow up to $552,500 to buy agricultural land, farm buildings, farm equipment and breeding livestock.

The Down Payment Loan program can be used by a qualifying Missouri producer to more readily secure a loan from a participating lender, either providing the full down payment, or supplementing the down payment amount available. It may be used in conjunction with MASBDA programs, for example the Beginning Farmer Loan Program, providing the borrower meets the criteria for both programs. It may also be used in conjunction with non-MASBDA programs.
