Greetings, IYOBA family.
We have exciting news, y'all: Pretty soon, you may be able to find some of our best-selling IYOBA goodies at a store near you...
(what does that mean?!)
We've partnered with a big-named retailer to distribute IYOBA products in 120+ stores by early 2022! Our goal is to make our high-quality all-natural products more available to you while creating local jobs in the community.
But to make this a success, we need your help.
IYOBA is raising a community-backed, 0% interest loan on Kiva and we are humbly asking you to:
The funds from this loan will go towards purchasing raw materials for production, production equipment, renting a space to create, and hiring part-time employees.
More about Kiva: Kiva is the first and largest micro-lending service in the world that has distributed $1 billion across 86 different countries, among 1.5 million small businesses. Recently, Kiva and Sofia Vegara announced a goal to raise $50M to support businesses around the world affected by Covid-19.
Thank you so much for continuing to support Black- and women-owned businesses. We are so grateful for our community!
With love and gratitude,
Efiya Asabi | IYOBA
