Oahu Farm Viability Cohort Application
Thank you for your interest in participating in Cultivating a Culture of Financial Planning and Risk Management: Training and Tools to Support Small Farm Business Health and Longevity

This is a cohort-based training program that will last 12 weeks and will provide financial analysis and planning tools to reduce business risk for 10 female and beginning farm business owners based out of Oahu. 

This form should take about 15-20 minutes to complete if you take time to think about each question and reflect on your business. The information you provide in this application will be used to help set your business and personal income goals and give us an understanding of what type of support would best help you meet your goals. Some of these questions use terminology commonly used in accounting (managerial accounting). If these terms are new to you, please answer them to the best of your ability or feel free to reach out for clarification and assistance. For any questions, please contact Logan Taylor Motas at logan.motas@oahurcd.org.
