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

A loan helped gain working capital for my business.

Kyung's story

Ever since kindergarten, I knew I had a knack for business. I excelled at trading sports cards with my friends and eventually obtained not one, but two Michael Jordan rookie-of-the-year cards. I fondly look back at this time as an introduction to my understanding of how to do business, and aspired to work at a reputable marketing and advertising firm in New York City as a leading partner. However, I saw many friends obtain such careers and lack purpose in continuing to work in their field. Running K-Mama Sauce for the past two years I have learned a tremendous amount about myself: leadership, self-esteem, and interpersonal skills (relationships). Whether it be this business or another in the future, I will continue to grow in my understanding of myself to better lead my staff and company. I hope to grow into a socially-conscious business like Toms, Warby Parker, or Newman’s Own. Whether I stay in the food industry or enter into various sectors like technology, or commercial real estate, I hope to always build socially minded businesses.
