More Kiva loans

We just made two more loans through Kiva. Mellow Monk supports this microfinance organization as part of our mission to promote sustainable, responsible ways of growing food.


Kiva does this by providing small loans ("microfinance") to independent, family-owned and -operated farms and businesses, which we believe are better stewards of the land and therefore better for all of us in the long run.


Our growers, after all, are proof of what wondrous things small, independent tea artisans can do.
