Recent Success Stories

We succeed when our borrowers succeed.

Amber and David Keen started Yeti snacks in their kitchen in 2014. Then, making a batch of pretzels could take up to 24 hours. Now they have a production facility in Eugene where they manufacture seven pretzel varieties sold all over the Pacific Northwest. In 2017, they worked with CLW to move into a facility and purchase new equipment to speed up their production process. Owner David Keen said, “CLW has a really simple process. They’re a great resource for small businesses to get funding to grow…Having the space and the ability to produce more quickly is priceless.”

Estela and Florentino Contreras grow vegetables that they sell at local farmer’s markets. They started with small plots of leased land using hand tools to cultivate a variety of fresh produce.  As their business grew, so did the plots of land. This year, they leased a large plot of land and knew they’d need to upgrade their equipment. Through Huerto de la Familia, the Contreras family connected with Community LendingWorks to purchase a tractor to increase their production and grow their business. “With this tractor we can increase production and also try new vegetables. I believe we can bring jicama to market and that is very exciting for us,” said Florentino.
