Mrs. Green’s World is a podcast that interviews “Disruptors for Good.” Last month, our director Danny Knee got together with Mike Peel of Local First Arizona for an interview. Danny and Mike discuss a wide range of topics, including their missions to help small businesses. Danny expounds on why we at CIC have chosen to make conservation and social entrepreneurship focal points in our lending portfolio. And then there’s the thrust of the interview: the SCALE UP program, which launched last summer to help local businesses implement conservation projects of their own.
