Local Farmers & Producers:

Apply now for our 2022 VFC Microloan!

We invite any local farm or business who sells food or products at any local farmers market, or who sells directly to the VFC, to apply for a one-year, no-interest loan of up to $3,500!

The VFC Microloan aims to strengthen small, local farmers and producers that are part of our local food system. Types of projects funded by the VFC Microlending Initiative are the ones that:

  • Help fill a hole in our local food system by expanding production and/or distribution of products.
  • Purchase equipment to increase efficiency and decrease costs of production.
  • Help a local producer grow their business.

Applications are due by midnight on January 31, 2022. The loan is awarded in early February and then announced in March of 2022. 

Download the application on our website at: www.viroquafood.coop/you-own-it/microlending-initiative
