A loan of $5,000 helped me to expand my bee livestock numbers to fulfill pollination contracts for several organic farms, while still bringing unique micro-climate honeys to several outstanding farmers' markets in San Francisco.

Robert's story

My great grandparents all immigrated to this country at the end of the 19th Century, and did whatever it took to establish new lives, eking out success. My generation slowly moved away from those roots, with university educations becoming commonplace, and though I only had one foot in an agricultural setting while growing up, I eventually transitioned to being city-based. Imagine the deep pleasure when my answer to our greatest recent financial instability in 2009 was to become a farmer in the city! Becoming a full time professional beekeeper remains remarkably fulfilling. Bees are worthy of my life's final devotion, and it takes a lifetime to become good at bees.

This loan is special because:

It will help an entrepreneur purchase more honey bee livestock.
