Organic Farmer Goes Global
Steve Heil of Gallup, New Mexico is an organic farmer growing native herbal tea.
Demand for his tea grew so quickly that he needed to buy a harvester to keep up. Time was of the essence.
Steve opened an IDA through Cuatro Puertas, a local community development corporation. In less than a year he saved $1,000 which, when matched, became $5,000. Steve was able to buy the harvester in time for the next growing season and expand his business globally.
How Prosperity Works Made A Difference: Prosperity Works assisted Cuatro Puerta to obtain the grant from the New Mexico Department of Agriculture that enable Steve to market his products globally.
