Together We Grow Member Loan Campaign

by 
Laura Morris Siena and Kathleen Casey, Co-Chairs, Member Loan Campaign

Member Loan Info Party

Tuesday, Nov. 15, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Ambler Theater, 108 E. Butler Ave., Ambler

Does supporting your local economy appeal to you? What about supporting your own food co-op with a member loan? How much more local can you get than that? Your dollars stay in the local community: providing jobs; strengthening our local food system, including our regional farmers; and making Weavers Way a more resilient organization today and in the future.

As part of financing our expansion to Ambler, we are reaching out to our own members for loans in support of site preparation and construction. Loans from members will constitute an essential piece of the overall funding of the project.

We will be offering two options on loans, with a minimum of $1,000 (no maximum!):

2.5% interest (per annum) for 4 years
4% interest (per annum) for 6 years

The simple (not compounded) interest is to be paid at the end of the loan period.

Payment can be made by check, or by direct bank transfer or credit card on the Weavers Way website. Lenders must be Weavers Way members and Pennsylvania residents.

We kicked off the campaign in October, so look for emails and store promotions for signs of our progress! To learn more and find out how to participate:

  • Visit www.weaversway.coop/member-loans
  • Ask a cashier at any Weavers Way store.
  • Attend one of our Member Loan Information parties. (There’s one scheduled for Nov. 15.) 

This offer is available through Dec. 9, 2016.
