Access to Capital through the La Montanita Fund

chickenSeveral years ago the La Montanita Coop created a micro-lending program to help small-scale New Mexico farmers, ranchers and local food producers access financial capital they couldn’t get from the bank. This fund, now called the “LAM Fund,” provides loans at affordable rates with great repayment terms. Projects can be anything from improvements to help farmers scale production, investments in new crops, or equipment purchases to facilitate the sales and production of new value-added local foods. 

The lending year is in full swing and La Montanita is accepting applications. For more information or to apply for a loan, call Robin Sydell at (505) 217-2027 or click here.
