Sun­corp sup­ports agribusi­ness in the Balonne Shire

Balonne Beacon - - NEWS -

IT HAS been a record­break­ing 2017 financial year for many in the agri­cul­tural sec­tor, and fore­cast­ers are pre­dict­ing over­all farm pro­duc­tion val­ues will re­main above the cur­rent five-year av­er­age for years to come.

Cat­tle prices are also ex­pected to stay above av­er­age, but with much of the re­gion hav­ing been drought de­clared for the past four years, the in­dus­try is fac­ing a num­ber of chal­lenges.

Sun­corp district bank­ing man­ager Sarah Mace said her team in St Ge­orge was there to sup­port its cus­tomers through the ups and downs of the cur­rent agri­cul­tural cy­cle and was pas­sion­ate about help­ing cus­tomers achieve suc­cess.

“The dif­fer­ence with our team is that we all have such a strong affin­ity with the re­gion and the ru­ral sec­tor,” Sarah said.

“I grew up on the land and I now live lo­cally with my hus­band on our fam­ily farm­ing op­er­a­tion at Nindigully, so we are fac­ing the same chal­lenges as our cus­tomers.

“Sun­corp is com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing agribusi­ness in our com­mu­nity, and my team is pas­sion­ate about work­ing with cus­tomers to meet their financial and busi­ness ob­jec­tives and de­vel­op­ing suc­cess­ful long-term re­la­tion­ships,” she said.

Sun­corp bank has a long and proud his­tory sup­port­ing re­gional and ru­ral Aus­tralia, hav­ing started its op­er­a­tions in 1902 as the Queens­land Agri­cul­tural Bank.
