PUERTO RICO RURAL INVESTMENT SUMMIT
National Rural Lender's Roundtable
This past Thursday and Friday we were invited to attend the Puerto Rico Rural Investment Summit hosted by the National Rural Lender's Roundtable at the San Juan Condado Plaza Hilton. Our invitation was thanks to Michelle Torres, our representative from the USDA, so a big shoutout to Michelle for making sure we attended this event! Great meetings with the leadership from the SBA, USDA, various Secretaries of Departments of the Government of #PuertoRico and a number of lenders including Thomas USAF Group, Touchmark National Bank, Live Oak Bank, and #OrientalBank. Some incredible loan guarantee programs on the government incentive side, combined with lenders who are really excited about what #FusionFarms is doing with our #HurricaneProtected #Aquaponic #VerticalFarm!
We had a great conversation with Secretary Manuel A. Laboy Rivera, Eng. who heads the Department of Economic Development and Commerce for Governor Ricardo Antonio Rosselló Nevares Administration, pictured below, will be visiting our facility in Mayagüez in the coming months!!! Very excited to be a part of bringing new opportunities to Puerto Rico!!!

PRIDCO LEASE UPDATE
We have been working really hard with Anthony Cordona, our representative from PRIDCO who has been working through all the complex issues associated with leasing their building in Mayaguez. After the Investment Summit in San Juan ended last Friday at noon, we spent much of the afternoon with Anthony at PRIDCO headquarters and we are pleased to announce that we received a hardcopy of the Lease Agreement. The photos below are of the cover letter confirming our receipt of that Lease, as well as Lisa standing out front of Anthony’s office holding the actual document! This is a MAJOR step forward for us, so we are so grateful to Anthony and all the hardworking staff at PRIDCO who have helped make this dream come true!
We are pleased with our progress and excited to welcome new IMPACT INVESTORS to our team, so thank you for VOTING with your DOLLARS!
