"UBI is an ag bank, they focus on ag and put your farm operation first, they really specialize in it."
We recently sat down with Dustin Fouch and his lender, Jim Friel, to find out why Dustin chose to bank with
United Bank of Iowa.
Dustin said, "I was 17 when I first started banking with Jim, and I have been with him ever since. I didn't have any loans or accounts anywhere else, and Jim really helped me understand everything. When I was first starting out with a Young Farmer loan, he did a lot of leg work to get the loan pushed through. He also gave me my first cow loan. A lot of banks wouldn't give a 17 year old a loan."
"I wouldn't be where I am today and have everything I do without Jim. United Bank of Iowa helped me start my farm operation and my business. They helped me achieve those things and grow in multiple ways with diversification, that is what really makes it work."
