This study is limited to Negro farmers living and operating farms in Austin County. In this report, a brief description of the natural and human resources of the county are given in order to establish a background of the area covered.
A description is also given of the established credit facilities in the county, both Government sponsored and private sources and their policies regarding credit to farm families.
The purpose for which the study was made was to determine the reasons why the farm population is on a steady decline, the cause for sub-standard housing, to determine where farmers obtain their capitol for their farm operations and the rate of interest charged by the various lending agencies. This study was also necessary in order that the writer can get a better knowledge of the farmers problems in relation to capitol and will aid in the planning of a program where some of the problems stated can be worked on.
