Student Gets Loan for First Crop

Our heartfelt congratulations goes to Entrepreneurship student Austin Francis.  He has just received his first business loan to plant 3 acres of tobacco!  He is leasing the land and equipment and has already ordered his plants.  These were all skills he learned in the ETR 240 Funding for Entrepreneurs class.  "I've never bought anything on credit, therefore I have no credit.  It's a hard spot to start out in, but this class prepared me for it and I intend to take my responsibility for the loan very seriously.  I am an Entrepreneur!" said Austin.

The tobacco plants will arrive on May 10th, the day after he walks across the stage to receive his Assoicate of Applied Science degree in Entrepreneurship.  Congratulations Austin, we are so proud of you!
