Matt's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped helps build a carport / outdoor kitchen to properly process produce and store equipment.
I grew up in the country in Sonoma county located in California. Growing up I never farmed but always had a garden with my dad. To see his face and excitement when vegetables where ripening was a huge inspiration for me. When I was young I was always drawn to tropical environments, never thinking I would end up living in one. Yet here I am, on the big island of Hawaii, farming tropical fruit and vegetables. We are getting closer every day to the end goal, to grow fruit and produce in mass, enough to at least to regularly supply the big island with what is currently imported. Growing up cooking professionally, my love for clean food took me to where I am now. I can’t begin to explain how good it feels to bring produce that we grew to professional chefs!
