Thanks everyone! You did it!!! We now have a fully funded loan. I’m looking forward to keeping all my lenders updated with progress and introduce you to some of the creativity and other artists and builders here at WagonWorks. Thanks to family and friends, Micah and the Tamaqua Area Community Partnership, Andy and the Rural LISC, and all of the lenders in the Kiva network from all over the globe. Stay tuned...
WagonWorks Wednesday, thanks so much, Almost there after 3 days!! We are 86% funded in our Kiva Loan opportunity, https://www.kiva.org/lend/1597341, thank you to everyone who has helped us out, supported and shared!!!
Our goal is to get a loan of $6,000 to help in renovating new areas within our building that rents artist studio spaces and provides membership access to the local community.
We are currently in a private fundraising period, during which I have 15 days to get 17 lenders in order to make it on the public platform where anyone on Kiva can lend to Wagonworks. The funds from this loan will go towards sealing up the building and establishing more art studio spaces.
I would like to ask you to lend as little as $25 (which you will get back!) so that I can progress to the public fundraising period. If you would like to support me, please follow this link to my profile page https://www.kiva.org/lend/1597341
This is the only way your loan will be tracked as coming through me. Thanks for your support, I am honestly so grateful!
