In Ferment is bubbling out and expanding!

This $10,000 loan finances equipment for a growing ceramic and fermenting business.

About the campaign

I established my pottery and ceramic arts studio in 2012 in Columbia City to offer functional pottery and ceramic art installations. I’m now enhancing my existing studio by launching In Ferment, a line of home ceramic fermenting jars, mainly crocks, which are used for making fermented foods (such as sauerkraut, kimchi, fermented or pickled vegetables, and even pickled meat) and teaching workshops.

In Ferment is ready to keep growing and meeting the needs of our customers and their health!

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.
