A Sports Bar for West Seattle — Let’s launch The Westy

This $25,000 loan helps open a new neighborhood sports bar in West Seattle.

About the campaign

Ask any career bartender, server, or restaurant worker what their endgame is, and each one will tell you to own and operate their own establishment. We are pursuing that dream. We have been hands on from day one; filing permits, designing, tearing down drywall and driving every nail. You aren’t going to find owners more passionate, working to make a living and support their families and pursuing their dreams.

The Westy is a neighborhood gathering place to hangout with your friends, watch sports, and enjoy delicious ballpark style food and drink (there’s also an assortment of games, like skeeball, to keep you entertained). Two and a half years ago, there was nothing but a florist a tanning place and the dry cleaners. Now we will have a nice classy jazz place serving beer and wine, Kenyon Hall with special events, and The Westy for sports and craft cocktails.

Community Sourced Capital helps small businesses access capital from people in their community

Most small businesses cannot access funding under $100,000 from traditional sources like banks. Currently, our country's financial system is set up to provide financing in larger amounts, to larger companies.

Providing capital to community-based businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Helping them is critical to the resiliency of both local communities and the national economy

While many online lenders have emerged to serve businesses needing less than $100,000 in funding, they often charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or even 50 percent. Businesses using Community Sourced Capital can access zero-interest loans from their community, paying only $50 per month in membership fees to use the platform, making it an affordable and sustainable way to circulate capital in local communities.

Participate in a financial system for communities, by communities

Join a growing community of lenders regenerating their local economies through finance. Participate in a loan for a small business. Grow your business with your community. Invest in the success of your neighbor.

That's the spirit behind Community Sourced Capital's motto: Fund the world you want to live in.
