Sadie's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped take larger orders for more gluten-free sourdough.

Sadie's story

My parents raised me to be self-employed. My dad sold sculptures, mobiles, and spoon rings to pay his tuition to nursing school. My mom sold beautiful clothing to support our family since my sister and I were in middle school. My sister swapped office work at the Trapeze School of New York for circus lessons, and I did work trade in a glassblowing studio while selling screen-printed shirts from my locker between classes. In 2009 I headed to San Francisco to win over the man of my dreams, Jesse. While supporting myself by making bike accessories and building floats for the Chinese New Year Parade, I started to mess around in the kitchen. Jesse was severely gluten-intolerant, and in an effort to spend some time together, I began to bake for him. About a year in, something clicked. I finally succeeded in winning Jesse's heart, my baking was really getting good, and I decided to start Bread SRSLY, San Francisco's first gluten-free sourdough bread company.
