We did it! Together, we helped successfully fund Mr. Garcia’s crowd-sourced loan through Kiva Zip last month. Check it out at this URL — <zip.kiva.org/loans/2760/>

With that money, he is renovating his market, including a new Healthy Snack Zone with new healthy food products for students at nearby John Muir Middle School and Hawkins High School. For more information, check out <goodfoodla.org>
