Few banks would even consider making agricultural loans, and those who did charged extremely high interest rates. Rural credit was fertile ground for the loan sharks, and year after year, farmers turned over their crops to help pay exorbitant interest charges on loans made to keep their farms operating." - Gabriel Kirkpatrick, CUNA Archivist, Archive Alamanac, Credit Union National Association.
