The More You Borrow, The Bigger Your Shareholder Earnings
As a cooperative, Alabama Farm Credit supports the cooperative principle of sharing our success with our customer-owners. That's the basic philosophy behind the patronage refund program. Investor-owned lenders pay dividends to their shareholders based on their ownership shares in the company. In contrast, we pass our earnings along to members in the form of patronage. Every borrower is also a stockholder who receives a part of the association's profits. The more you borrow, the bigger your share of earnings.
