The National Young Farmers Coalition is collecting stories about the effect of student loan debt on the next generation of farmers and ranchers. We want to hear from both farmers managing debt and those whose debt prevented them from farming.

Your stories will inform our strategy for student loan policy reform. We will share them with policymakers, non-profit partners and the public to advocate for policies that offer loan forgiveness or deferment for farmers. We will not attribute any stories without express permission.

* In which ways has student loan debt affected your ability to farm?

* Please tell us your story.

* How much student loan debt do you have?

* What is the highest level of education you have completed?

* What is/are your degree(s) in?

* What repayment plan are you currently using? (The default plan is the Standard)
