A new year marks the launch of a new website for Texas Farm Credit, a customer-owned lending cooperative that supports rural communities and agriculture in 100 counties.
The website has been enhanced with a fresh look and format, easier navigation, new product descriptions and community-oriented features. Customer testimonials are woven throughout the site, and a redesigned locations section highlights comments from the local customers at each branch.
“We hope that visitors will be able to sense our hometown values through the words of our customers,” said Mark Miller, Texas Farm Credit chief executive officer. “We redesigned our website to help them more easily find information, financing and services that meet the unique needs of rural communities.”
The site’s content and technology have been updated to provide a user-friendly experience both from desktop computers and mobile devices out in the field. Features include:
--Descriptions of Texas Farm Credit’s agriculture and land loans, home loans, crop insurance and other services
--An improved locations section that makes it easy to find a branch office using a map, address or the user’s own location
--Online and mobile banking, loan applications and other services designed for convenience and security
--Information on the lender’s cooperative structure, including its member-elected board and an earnings-sharing patronage program that effectively lowers customers’ borrowing costs
--Borrower profiles, community service announcements, a college scholarship application, an event calendar and eNewsletter
--Rural property listings from Lands of America and the Texas Alliance of Land Brokers
