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

A loan helped two women nourish a community, support local farms, and make delicious food.

Shannon's story

We are two Amigas with a passion for people and food. With more than 10 years of experience and training in the culinary industry, we believe our company, Milpa, is a natural next step. We have successfully worked together for 8 years and consider ourselves good friends and lucky to have had the opportunity to work together in a variety of locations. I have worked and trained in kitchens across the US for 15 years and Miros has a Masters’ Degree in Administration and a natural palette. Together we truly make the perfect team! We each have a unique perspective on our local food community and the desire to cultivate community. We want to take traditional Mexican recipes and adapt them to the incredible seasonal bounty here in Madison, WI. By supporting local farmers, cultivating relationships of empowerment, and connecting with our strong community of non-profit organizations, we hope to build cultural bridges and nourish our community.
