Quick blog post here. I’m asking you to support a woman-owned company in its pursuit of a grant: Los Kitos Produce.
The Orange, CA-based company was featured in OC METRO several years ago as we profiled founder and CEO Martha Montoya, a talented cartoonist who used her creativity to create a cartoon strip of characters that taught children life lessons through their antics. Montoya later went on to work to reduce childhood obesity through the messaging of her characters. Today, she has launched a new company that aims to assist small and minority produce growers to gain access to distribution through the nation’s largest retailers. A grant from the Chase / LivingSocial program called Mission: Small Business would help greatly.
Please take just a few minutes to help her. In doing so, you’ll be helping independent farmers and the people that will benefit from their success. Here’s how.
