Project pages are personalized pages to showcase your campaign on Steward's platform.
Use this space to communicate to potential participating lenders why you are applying for a Steward loan and how their participations will help your business. The more information and specific details you can share, the more confident lenders will be to participate in your loan.
Tips for creating a successful project Page
To maintain the quality of farm projects in Steward's network, our team reviews all projects before they are published.

- What will the Steward loan be used for?
- How will these purchases benefit your business?
- How did you get into agriculture and why do you do what you do?
- What regenerative or sustainable agriculture practices do you use?
- What are the potential effects of your project on the community or your local food system?
