Loan Update and Membership
On April 14, New Leaf Market Co-op was approved for a $250,000 Brown County Revolving Loan! This strong support is grounded in your community-owned co-op’s contributions to Brown County’s economic development in the form of good jobs, a steady market for regional farm and food products, and the recirculation of profits to member-owners. The next step is a City of De Pere Revolving Loan Fund Application, which comes before the De Pere City Council for approval in May.
Increasing the number of member-owners is the last step to reaching the total financing goal! New Leaf Market Co-op already has 900 member-owners. To meet the county loan requirements, we need 600 more member-owners to begin construction by September.
What can you do to help close the deal?
1. Click the JOIN US tab and become a member-owner now, if you’re not already one of the first 900 charter members.
2. Encourage your friends & family to become member-owners. Person-to-person recommendations are the most powerful way to grow your co-op’s membership.
