Central Valley Ag was recently recognized by The Cooperative Finance Association (CFA) as a leader in using the Input Finance Program for the 2016 crop year within the CFA member base. Chuck Bibb from CFA is presenting the 2016 award to Peggy Hopwood and Mary Jo Uphoff.
For the 2016 Crop Year, 356 customers of CVA customers took advantage of the Input Finance Program offered by the cooperative and supported by CFA. These customers were approved for secured lines of credit to support their agronomy purchases from CVA and the total loan dollars committed for the 2016 crop year totaled $36.0 million dollars. The number of customers, as well as total loan dollars committed to the Input Finance Program for the 2016 crop year was all time record for CVA. In addition to setting a local record, CVA was also the number one cooperative within CFA’s membership base for the 2016 crop year based on total loan commitments. CFA appreciates the support from management & employees of CVA, as well at the many customers who use the input finance program to support their local farming operations.
