Each project must be planned and operated with the assistance of an organization advisor, pro- duce sufficient income to repay the loan, and provide the youth with practical business and educational experience in agriculture- related skills. To qualify for a loan, the applicant must: comply with FSA's general eligibility require- ments; reside in a rural area, city or town with a popu- lation of 50,000 or fewer people; and conduct a modest in- come-producing project in a supervised program of work.
