Meet microloan recipient Elisa.
Elisa lives in the Ecuadorean countryside with her husband, children and grandchildren. She has spent her entire 69 years of life farming. Life as a farmer has far ex’seed’ed Elisa’s expectations, sow she dreams of continuing for years to come. She is using her microloan to buy a pair of calves and rent land for their fodder.
We are microloaning to Elisa and several farmers throughout Ecuador’s Andean Mountains…
With the new Ecuador Tote (Limited) to help till't the scale in their favor.
Here’s to hoe'ping for great harvests ahead and to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

It’s Feel Good Friday and we got some good news for ya! So which do you want first… the good news… or more good news?
Good news: We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been given the green light to start making totes again! (Back in April, we were deemed non-essential so we had to stop tote production due to the Governor’s COVID orders).
More good news: For the past 3 months, we turned our attention to making face masks for our customers and donating face masks to hospital workers (don't worry, we didn’t go into hibernation mode. If anything, we got busier producing all these face masks).
Tis the sea-sun as summer is officially here! We’re feeling pretty shore that it’s going to be a great summer! Here’s to shell-abrating good times with great people..
