EthicHub is crowdlending on peer-to-peer basis for investors and farmers. At the same time we are a marketplace for the handling of purchases of big coffee companies. We connect farmers who do not have access to bank loan with investors seeking greater profitability or want to generate social impact. EthicHub also negotiates the contracts for purchases of coffee by large companies. By doing this the repayment of the loans is guaranteed for the investor from the beginning. The farmers can be financed at a lower cost while increasing their production and the large companies are guaranteed their annual purchases of coffee.
