Community Driven Lending Club for Local Food Investments
SOIL Sangre de Cristo’s goal is to build a robust local food economy by giving community farmers, growers, and local food enterprises a boost in the South Central Colorado region.
Makes 0% interest loans to community growers and local food entrepreneurs.
Currently serves South Central Colorado.
Loan funds circulate. So when a loan is paid back, it goes back into our fund for future loans!
Loans are selected based on the loanee's potential to make the greatest positive impact on our local food economy and a set of ethics established by the loan selection committee.
All loans are voted upon by members annually, ($250 minimum /year, $25 for grower/food entrepreneur). Each member has one vote no matter the size of the donation.
