Errr... you're right of course...  :-/   (I was thinking *way* to narrow.)

I think the context is correct, just need a synonym that isn't already used.

   provide, provider 
   supply, supplier
   dispense, dispenser
   deal, dealer
   deliver, deliveror

   parcel, meter, dish, give, dole, offer, cede...

   Maybe barrow from a different language?
