You did it! All of you, the many friends of Brainy Belly came together and pledged $10,000 to our goal of moving into USDA Inspected production.
It was so thrilling to watch the progress of your commitments gather shape via our Kiva loan request. 163 lenders offered financial contributions to be repaid over three years without interest. Thanks to this cash we've been able to purchase new stock pot stoves for the dedicated production space, add another employee, (the estimable Mr. Sanders,) and do a complete redesign of all our labels. We are so grateful and appreciative to have this capacity to make decisions and create options that the normal cash flow of a small business is not ready to meet.
I've participated in the Kiva community for many years, fascinated by the reach and scope of the doors it opened for hard working people around the globe. Brainy Belly is proud to join their ranks and become a full fledged member of the Kiva Community. Thank you.
