Joyce's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped us to provide a bright and airy new home for our expanding herd of dairy goats who provide the milk we need for cheese production in our on farm creamery.
After years working in medical settings I took time off to care for my parents and young daughter. During that time I got our first two goats and started experimenting with cheese making. A business was born and I found the job I was meant to do. After some very difficult personal circumstances nearly made me sell the goats and equipment in 2015 my daughter convinced me to keep farming. Now my daughter and I are farming together and are excited to grow the business together.
