“I’m excited to bring my experience and knowledge to help the Farm Credit team in supporting local producers to continue to develop, grow and to be successful,” Colón said. “I’m proud to work for an organization dedicated to providing capital as well as educational resources, especially our support for young, beginning and small farmers.”
After spending her first twelve years living in upstate New York, Colón moved with her family to Puerto Rico where they owned and managed a 900 acre farm, among other businesses. She was active in 4-H, and in her church.
