Siller Pollinator Company
This is our second time supporting Siller Pollinator Company, a woman- and LGBTQ-owned company on a mission to help people help pollinators. The SPC team offers hive management, beekeeping consulting, native bee husbandry, pollinator habitat development, beekeeping supplies, honey, and more throughout central Virginia. They have seen a massive demand for their services since we first partnered with them in 2021, and have recently teamed up with a local net-zero meadery to ensure the honey is flowing. With opportunities to expand their footprint all the time, SPC has been working closely with a bookkeeper and came to us once they had a real handle on their finances to talk about sustainable growth.
We were very proud to support them with another loan to streamline operations, including paying off their existing loan at a lower rate. Our Director of Strategy & Comms. hosts a hive at her home in Charlottesville with the support of SPC and can't say enough good things about this team.
