Bridging Generations Initiative (BGI): Flexible Financing

By mmuise

MASC's Bridging Generations Initiative offers Flexible Financing to young farmers to assist them through the critical purchase and start-up period of farm operations.

Comments on Funding:

Funding takes the form of loans and eligible young farmers (18 to 39 years of age) can opt for either:
- 90% financing, significantly reducing the down payment required, or
- 5 years of interest-only payments, which eases the young farmer's cash flow while an enterprise is being established.

Deadline: Continuous Intake

Applicants must:

  • be young farmers aged 18 to 39;
  • be Manitoba residents;
  • personally operate the farm to which the loan applies.
