Mark's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me purchase equipment for a new product we are working on and the design work for the new packaging. The loan will also help me to purchase green coffee needed for this new product, and my wholesale and retail partners.
I grew up in Newberg, OR, a small, rural town. I was raised with an understanding that hard work and caring for those around us will benefit the larger community. Though I never expected to start a business, my upbringing continues to push Intent Coffee Roasting forward. Living in Portland, I am constantly inspired to create meaningful connections and projects that reflect my community and the world around us. Coffee is a big industry in Portland, and that pushes me to do my best and continue to grow. Of course, I couldn't have a business that wasn't giving back, and that is why Intent invests 30% of all our profits to develop clean water solutions in coffee-growing regions!
