A loan helped me purchase all the necessary equipment and materials to finish the first Block Farms in Puerto Rico.


Rebecca's story

I am a young Puerto Rican entrepreneur focusing on agricultural innovation. In Spain, where I lived for 7 years, I co-founded a techno-agricultural company specializing in hydroponics, viticulture, and agricultural machinery. After several years introducing new products in the agricultural sector to global markets, I decided to develop a larger project, my own project, Block Farms.
With Block Farms, we have proven that you can produce local food in a sustainable way in less space 365 days without weather concerns!

In 2016, we manufactured the first Block Farms in Spain, but after having experienced both hurricane Irma and Maria, I decided it was time to implement Block Farms in Puerto Rico. Block Farms is a solution against the agricultural devastation of a natural disaster.

I believe innovation in agriculture is one of the most important and necessary investment for humanity. Because there is a growing population that will live in cities and we need to fing a solution to feed everyone in a healthy and sustainable way. My passion is to promote urban and indoor farming which provides the most efficient food resource with minimal impact on the environment. Also I believe we have to create new methods of agriculture that produce food with quality and maximum efficiency. We need to find excellence in agriculture.

It helps an established female entrepreneur expand her innovative urban farming business.
