VEDC is proud to endorse our first Kiva borrower Lawrence Charles, owner and founder of Charles & Company!

Based in Long Beach, Charles & Company offers premium teas for avid tea drinkers locally and across the world, and sells its product online and in local Southern California restaurants and shops, including Four Seasons hotels. Through a passionate understanding of the culture, the company provides genuine experiences of traditional British tea through comfort and luxury.

Clients include Sir Anthony Hopkins, British Polo Day, and the British Royal family, and he has worked with the James Beard Foundation’s Celebrity Chef Tour and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation raising money for charities. His own non-profit TEA’D UP supports young people through his product sales and giving.

Lawrence Charles is seeking a loan to purchase inventory and expand his provision of teas to additional Four Seasons hotels, improve packaging and increase the website’s visibility. KIVA is a non-profit crowdfunding site offering 0% loans to entrepreneurs with endorsements from their community. VEDC is proud to stand behind Lawrence as his business grows with the help of our small business family and friends in California.

Visit the KIVA lending page to support Charles & Company, visit his website to purchase premium teas, and share with others in your network to spread the word and support you fellow entrepreneur!
