We loan because...
We want to nurture small food and farm businesses on all the Hawaiian Islands, helping them to strengthen our local food systems and, as a result, the soil of our precious agricultural lands and the culture of our islands. Hawaii depends upon imports for 80-90% of our food supply which, in the case of a tsunami, hurricane or earthquake that closes our ports, could easily be disrupted. Helping these businesses obtain "friendly capital" to help them start-up or grow, is key to increasing our local food production, distribution and processing infrastructure.

About us
We help our communities thrive by bringing Hawaii entrepreneurs together with other residents who can make a modest loan to improve the aina (land), the supply of wholesome locally grown food, and to preserve our rural Hawaii landscapes.
