Thomas's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me purchase equipment needed to make a huge impact on my community by providing local food.
I grew up in Lexington, Kentucky. I am actually farming on the same land my grandfather was farming over 40 years. I have lived on this farm all my life, it is my life. The want to farm has always been in my blood. I grew up with tobacco, corn, and soybeans as the major crops on the farm, but I knew I wanted to do something a little different. This land has taken care of me all my life and I knew I needed to return the gesture. We have really put a lot of emphasis on soil fertility and keeping pesticides and herbicides off the property. I dream that one day we will get to see how much of an impact we as a farm have had on our community, we have a strong calling to be apart of our community and this is just another way to do that.
