Calling all investors..that’s you! Meet Heather McLeod and her business, Three Pug Bakery. Endorsed by the Slow Money-minded Local Investment Networking Club, Heather is crowd-sourcing her Kiva Zip loan of $5,000 for the marketing and web support to take her Three Pug Bakery to the next level. With 31 days left in her campaign, you can become an investor for as little as $5!
Since Slow Money first met Heather in February, we’ve been impressed with her wonderful flax brittle trail mix. But we’ve also noticed Heather’s strong sense of community building! (Heather partners with Dizzy Daisy, a local flower shop, to sell her goods instead of leasing a store front). We love Heather’s excitement at growing her Three Pug brand honoring her long time love affair with dogs. And it all starts with her brittle and her own pugs, Fawn, Faith and Fern!
Slow Money SoCal believes everyone is an investor. Getting involved with one of our Kiva Zip raises is an easy next step. You’re already invested, let’s take it up a notch!
Kiva Zip Success!! Angela Eason and Best Gumbo in the Hood
Angela Eason is excited to have completed her successful raise on June 17th, you can view Angela’s loan and other recently completed raises endorsed by the Local Investment Networking Club. Angela loves sharing her gumbo and enthusiasm for Southern cuisine. She also cares about giving back to our neighborhoods and community. Some 20 years after her first visit to New Orleans, Angela is introducing her tasty, yet healthy versions of gumbo through Best Gumbo in the Hood. Available in both vegan and a still healthy traditional recipe, Angela is featured in our Orange County based, newly opened food hall’s grocery section, 4th Street Market Honor Roll. Angela is a local chef worthy of display!
