FCS Financial recognizes the vital role veterans play in protecting our country through their display of courage, honor and duty.
To celebrate veterans this Fourth of July, FCS Financial launched Heartland Heroes, a program designed for veterans.
“Rural America is home to 40 percent of our military service members. We know many of these individuals plan to return to their roots after their service. Heartland Heroes offers a special financing program and educational component to help them achieve success in their agricultural endeavors,” said David Janish, FCS Financial CEO.
Heartland Heroes is a program that combines credit, communication, a resource team and knowledge sharing to help veteran farmers realize their full potential. Current farmers who are FCS Financial member-owners are volunteering their time and expertise to serve as a resource for members of Heartland Heroes.
Heartland Heroes strives to serve veterans who are aspiring agricultural entrepreneurs, those returning to a family farm or those who want to live a rural lifestyle.
