We consider a simple setup with light squarks which is free from the gravitino and SUSY flavor problems. In our setup, a SUSY breaking sector is sequestered from the matter and gauge sectors, and it only couples to the Higgs sector directly with O(100) TeV gravitino. Resulting mass spectra of sfermions are split: the first and second generation sfermions are light as O(1) TeV while the third generation sfermions are heavy as O(10) TeV. The light squarks of O(1) TeV can be searched at the (high-luminosity) LHC and future collider experiments. Our scenario can naturally avoid too large flavor-changing neutral currents and it is consistent with the ϵK constraint. Moreover, there are regions explaining the muon g − 2 anomaly and bottom-tau/top-bottom-tau Yukawa coupling unification simultaneously.
