Craig's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped progress my business as a farmer capable to produce local agriculture.
I am a journeyman carpenter that is helping his wife raise our two young children in a farming community and attempting to gain back a piece of property that has been neglected for years. I have decided along with my wife to make a career change and begin with a project to produce fruit and vegetables for our local community. We have been working daily at clearing and regaining the abundance of mature trees that are on the property and clearing the invasive species. We are daily reminded of how important a tractor with a backhoe will greatly benefit us in completing our projects safely and efficiently. Although the to-do list is endless, and currently the majority of my time is absorbed by taking care of my children every day while my wife works. Having a piece of equipment that can help expedite the process of removing trees that are out-competing the fruiting fauna will be a major step in creating a successful business plan that can get our farm on track to begin actively increasing our income from agricultural products.
