"We did it! You did it! We all did it!"

Now, as they say, the real work begins.

"Feeling the love"

We started farming because for us, the sacred acts of agriculture are direct moral and ethical actions.

Southern Fried Farm

My mission incorporates self-reliance, dirt, seeds, watching the miracles of Mother Earth, lots of sunshine, and plenty of hard work

"Kiva helps an organic farm expand"

I farm because I love to eat well and I love sharing good food with my community.

"I feel empowered!"

The mission behind my work at Oko Farms is to inspire a generation of food and environmental enthusiasts through urban farming.

The Mayor of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Full disclosure: This post is not about the actual mayor of Dar es Salaam, but rather a Kiva borrower named Samweli whom I had the pleasure of meeting, and the story behind his nickname, the “Mayor of Dar es Salaam.”

"Boost in morale!"

I was able to raise a $5,000 loan in just a few weeks with the Greenhorns as my Trustee and 138 lenders supporting me.

"Simple, encouraging, and a good life choice!"

I finally made the leap almost exactly one year ago, because I wanted to fully use my graduate degree in Food Studies and make the most impact I could while doing work that I felt really good about doing every day.

"Rock and ROLL!"

My business came as a need for healthier options when looking for quality meals. 

"The experience was awesome"

Savannah Sauce Company was started by accident!
