Matt Anglin grew up on a small farm and worked on it during the summers. After serving our country in Iraq from 2007-2009, Matt decided he wanted to own a farm. Combining his love for agriculture and his desire to spend more time with his family, he began the process of applying for a loan with Live Oak Bank in 2014.
Initially, Matt and his wife struggled to find financing from other banks. It wasn’t until Matt connected with Live Oak’s Senior Loan Officer, Randy Ratcliff, that things began to unfold.
“Matt was great to work with from day one. His dedication to achieving his lifelong goal for him and his family has been incredible to watch, and I am proud that Live Oak is part of that. Matt is quite honestly one of the hardest working young farmers that I have met in many years,” said Randy.
Watch as Matthew explains how an SBA Live Oak Bank loan allowed him to realize his dream of owning a poultry farm.
“I was at work the day I found out our loan was approved. I was so excited; this is something that I have wanted for over ten years. The ability to start my own business has been life changing. I’m able to spend time with my family and provide a good living and future for my kids. If you have a love for outdoors and farming, call Live Oak and see what they can do for you,” said Matt.
