Shane's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped keep our produce cool as a cucumber!

Shane's story

Growing up we've always had gardens and my family would spend weekends visiting local farms and orchards for u-pick. I never thought I'd get into farming but while living Chicago I started volunteering at local farmers markets and community gardens I got the bug. My career was in marketing but my passion of being outdoors on farms as a child were calling me. After a few years of planning and visiting farms I moved to the country 90 minutes outside Chicago and started an organic farm. Growing food for my community and employing members of my community has been so fulfilling that I hope to continue for another 8 years if not longer!
