Money talks, but what does your money say? If you don’t hear anything, maybe you should try listening more closely. Your money could be trying to tell you something important. Maybe your money is bored. Perhaps your money would really like to do more for your community. It sounds like your money has a good heart.
If you feel like your money is interested in doing more out there, in the world, you might be interested in the efforts of Community Sourced Capital. Community Sourced Capital provides loans to small businesses (like Plywerk) using capital sourced directly from people in the community. It makes small business lending simple for everyone.
Anyone can take part in funding a loan for a business they choose by purchasing a little something called a Square. A square is just a $50 unit of the larger loan that goes to a business. Here’s how it works: You loan a business $50 and you are eventually repaid $50. It’s not a donation and it’s not an investment. It’s just a way to help a small business in your community.
Soon, we’ll be asking members of our community to become Plywerk Squareholders. By buying (loaning) Plywerk a $50 square, you can help us reach our goal of $50,000. Each month, you’ll be repaid a percentage of your loan until you get the full amount back. It’s not like when you “loan” money to your cousin, the aspiring actor. When you make a loan to Plywerk through Community Sourced Capital, you’ll live to see it returned.
From June 1st through June 30th, we’ll be running a campaign through Community Sourced Capital. We’d love to reach our goal of $50,000, but it’s imperative that we get to $15,000. So lend us a hand. Or a square. And remember, you can buy as many squares as you please.
