Organic Farmer Goes Global

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.
