It is time for the next chapter in my work, as an herbalist and healer providing care to my community. This is to branch off with a “mobile clinic”. Sage Moon Apothecary & Curiosities will remain in it’s location in Downtown Ellsworth, Maine and continue to provide herbal medicines, wellness care, and local arts and crafts to our community. The mobile apothecary/healing clinic will be available in Seal Harbor and eventually at various towns on and around Mount Desert Island - and perhaps eventually even further out.
Having a mobile clinic will allow me to see more clients, in particular with my Lyme Therapy work. It will allow people on Mount Desert Island to more easily access me and my work without traveling off island. It will also eventually allow me to bring my work to other nearby towns and villages.
From the mobile clinic I will provide Lyme Therapy, Energetic Bodywork Therapy, and have some of Sage Moon Apothecary’s products available with a small shop set up.
In order to make this happen, I need help. I have qualified for a Kiva loan 0% interest loan (YAY!) and have their support in this project. (Kiva is the first and largest micro-lending service in the world that has contributed $1 billion over 10 years in 86 different countries, among 1.5 million small businesses. WOW!)
This is the second Kiva loan that I have applied for. The first was two years back and helped me launch my business in a larger way and eventually led to the brick and mortar shop in Ellsworth. It was paid off in two years.
I am currently in a private fundraising period, during which I have 15 days to get 25 lenders in order to make it on the public platform, in which anyone on Kiva from anywhere in the world can lend to me.
This is an all or nothing fundraising loan. This means if I don’t reach my goal, all lenders money is returned to to them at the end of the crowdfunding period (45 days).
I am asking for your help in manifesting this dream of a mobile clinic which will allow me to help so many people.
I would like to ask you to lend as little as $25 (you can lend more if you like) - which you will get back, so that I can progress to the public fundraising period. If you would like to support me, please follow this link to my profile page https://www.kiva.org/lend/1816195 . You can also read more details about my story and what your funds will be going to.
This is the ONLY way your loan will be tracked as coming through to me.
Thank you so very much for your support in helping me further support our communities.
Warmly and with Immense Gratitude,
