Why are you interested in becoming a Trustee?
La Cocina's mission is to provide resources and opportunities to entrepreneurs so that they can make a living doing what they love to do. We want to be a trustee on Kiva Zip so that we can expand the ways that we are able to connect entrepreneurs to the resources they need to launch and grow their food businesses.
What is the mission of your organization?
The mission of La Cocina is to cultivate low-income food entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their businesses by providing affordable commercial kitchen space, industry-specific technical assistance and access to market opportunities. We focus primarily on women from communities of color and immigrant communities. Our vision is that entrepreneurs will become economically self-sufficient and contribute to a vibrant economy doing what they love to do.
