Shirin needed this loan to assist in paying for a new line of specialty dresses and other items. Due to her family’s past banking history, this small loan made the difference in being able to bring the stock on time at an excellent price.
Shirin wants to see her business grow, so that one day she does not have to rely on loans when new stock is needed. She loves bringing beauty into the lives of her customers.
