About GENKI-SU: Japanese Drinking Vinegar

Genki-Su is handcrafted drinking vinegar from an infusion of Japanese fruits and natural ingredients. Inspired by our family recipe in Okinawa, Japan. The taste is refreshing and vibrant with the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness!

Genki-Su is a catalyst to improve the quality and length of people’s lives because of the health benefits in drinking vinegar. Our passion is to contribute to our community's well-being. Drinking vinegar is an ancient Japanese practice that dates back to feudal times, when samurai warriors carried vinegar mixed with water into battle as a tonic to fight fatigue. In present-day Japan, it is a practice that is enjoyed by nearly 70% of the population. Japanese drinking vinegars are entirely different from cooking vinegars. They contain half the acidity and are flavored with fruit. When diluted with ice and soda water, tea, or juice, the result is a crisp, refreshing drink!

GENKI-SU: Japanese Drinking Vinegar was established in 2012, and is located in Portland, OR.

Partner with community sourced capital

Community Sourced Capital exists so that businesses can access affordable capital from their community

By connecting community members, small business owners and mission-aligned funders to the goal of creating healthy communities, we’re introducing a new purpose for financial systems, removing barriers to success for entrepreneurs, and building meaningful relationships around money.

Providing affordable capital to community businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Everyone seems to know that. What most people don't know is how important funding is to the success of a business.

Even in this day and age, most small businesses simply cannot access the funding they need to succeed. New lenders have emerged to serve this need, but many of them charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or 50 percent. These rates can compromise the stability of the businesses that ultimately provide stability to our 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.
