Shaundrial loves clothes and fashion and has a good eye for both. Her business, Adores Boutique, offers the latest in women’s fashion, offering shoes, dresses, blouses, jewelry, accessories and many other items a person may purchase online at affordable prices.
Since Shaundrial began her online boutique more than nine months ago, she funded her business through her savings. Her long-term goal is to one day open a store front. As her business expands, Shaundrial expects to create more jobs.
Currently, Shaundrial needs to purchase more inventory. After a co-worker received a flyer from Accion Texas Inc., she turned to the nonprofit microlender for a business loan. Once approved for her loan, Shaundrial was able to purchase fall styles, pay her one employee, and earn revenue through the remainder of the year. The Accion loan allowed Shaundrial to pay for the maintenance of her website, www.adoresboutique.com. Within the website, you can preview items and purchase the weekly updated merchandise online.
“Without the Accion loan, my business would move slower," Shaundrial says. "I would have to order less inventory.”
