Total loan: $8,500


Westchester, IL, United States / Agriculture

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

A loan helped our nonprofit finish development on a sustainable community farm in an area with few stores.

Grant's story

I'm a South African - American driven by a need to help others. 3 years ago I started nonprofit FergusonCares 501(c)3 along with my 11yr old, my brother and our mother, to help those less fortunate, and as an reaction to my recent divorce from the love of my life. I'm now a single father and I just want to spread love and help people. I want to renew a sense of community and provide fruits and vegetables on Chicago's south-side, producing essential vegetables and potatoes+potato flour even in times of crisis, to some of Illinois most disadvantaged communities. I just spend the majority of my savings buying the land and most the equipment needed for our sustainable community farm.
