Project with Third Root
For the purchase of a store-front sign and new website, complete with training on how to maintain.
Third Root is a community health center that seeks to provide social justice and community wellness by providing holistic, collaborative care in an accessible and sustainable manner. We met the cooperative, which is located in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn, in October 2011, introducing ourselves and discussing several possible investments intended to improve the sustainability of the coop. Out of this and a subsequent meeting, we decided to undertake two projects. The first is to buy a sign for the storefront. This is important because the cooperative is located just off a major throughway but, because of its dark storefront, is almost completely invisible from the street. The second project is an upgrade of the coop's website. The theme used in the first site (and throughout the coop's marketing) will be similar, but the architecture and information provided will be upgraded. Several members of the cooperative will also be taught to maintain the website themselves. The goal of this project is to bring in more people to use the coop's services, enabling current coop owners to take on work there as more of a full-time activity. Finally, it is worthwhile to note that Third Root is also investing around $1,000 of its own money in this project. The loan will be disbursed over the course of several weeks, as pieces of the two projects are finished, starting February 25.

We still haven't received the 9th repayment from February's sales. Third Root has been pretty consistent with their repayments, and will most likely catchup.
