June 21, 2018 03:06 PM
The June Rural Mainstreet Index is released.

For the fifth straight month, Creighton University’s Rural Mainstreet Index (RMI) has remained above growth neutral.

There was a slight drop in the index from 56.3 to 56.1, however it remains above 50, which represents growth neutral.

While there was a meager increase in farmland and ranchland from 42.2 in May to 42.7 in June, it is the 55thconsecutive month land values have remained below growth neutral.

Farmer borrowing rose as well in June. According to the RMI, the loan-volume index saw an increase from 76.3 from 74.3 in May. According to nearly two-thirds of the bankers surveyed, collateral requirements on farm loans increased.

40.5 percent of survey respondents mentioned their banks “rejected a higher percentage of farm loan applications.” This rate has nearly doubled in the last 12 months.

The RMI survey respondents are bank CEOs in rural areas in a 10-state region dependent upon agriculture and/or energy.

  I am writing this Testimony because am really grateful for what BARRY MORE did for me and my family, when I thought there was no hope he came and make my family feel alive again by lending us loan at a very low interest rate of 3%. Well I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts for the past three months all I met scammed and took my money until I finally met a God sent Lender. I never thought that there are still genuine loan lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any amount i would advise you to email: barrymoreloans12@gmail.com or you can text +19725345446 and be free of internet scams. thanks...
