Kiva Lending Team: The Future of Farming
We loan because...
We see a movement underway, to a re-localized food system, based on principles of sustainability. Organic practices? - likely. Certification? - possibly. Innovative and hard working and in need of recognition and finance and our purchasing power? - with out a doubt.
Sustainability is not just about growing practices. It is about small farm businesses that can last and thrive. Access to capital is a large part of that equation and one that has been scarce to non-existent for many small scale growers. Kiva is changing that and giving us all a chance to participate in this revolutionary shift, to food with a story.
We can make this difference, one purchase at a time, one small loan at a time, one conversation at a time. Please join hands to create the meal that feeds us all.
Individuals who want to create the new food system, one farm at a time. And pretty much anyone who wants to join and add to the conversation!
