SOIL Sangre De Cristo
Slow Opportunities for Investing Locally
What is SOIL Sangre de Cristo?
SOIL Sangre de Cristo is a membership based community loan fund that awards 0% interest loans to local farmers, ranchers and other food producers.
It is a new way to fund local food. Using charitable donations from Investor Members funds are available to local farmers, ranchers and other food enterprises for 0% Interest Loans. Together, we are building a permanent, member driven, revolving loan fund.
How does it work? People in the community become members of SOIL Sangre de Cristo with a tax deductible contribution. The contributions grow the 0% interest revolving loan to local farmers, ranchers and food entrepreneurs. All contributions are welcome! Members who contribute $250 and above will vote on the loan applications to award the loans. When loans are repaid the funds are returned to the pool to fund new loans. Over the years, SOIL Sangre de Cristo will grow into a substantial lending resource for sustainable food production.
Mission Statement: Building healthy community, through investing, for the support of a local, sustainable food future.

reconnecting us in ways that politics and moonshots never will.”
