Samantha's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped enrich the lives of kids in our community by creating a safe place for them to play and use their imagination while providing the opportunity to create a stable income for my family and household.
I am a single mother, entrepreneur, college graduate and dedicated worker. I grew up in Sacramento, California. I come from a huge family including 4 brothers and 2 sisters who mean the world to me. I had my first and only child at 20 years old and have raised him solo since day one. We have traveled all over the United States together, he is a warm-hearted and genuine person and I am known in my circle of friends for being a wonderful mom and hard-working woman. I graduated with Associate Degrees in Small Business Management, Marketing and Social Science in 2011. I took my then-toddler with me to school every day, and he cheered me on in the stands at graduation. Immediately upon graduating, I started my first business. I grew the business drastically and reached over $60K by the end of year 2. This was done by cold-calling businesses, actively marketing within my community and creating a solid reputation both online and in the community. I sold the business in 2015 and started my current business at the end of that year. Today, I am looking to expand, to grow my business and create a great space for the kids to play and learn, indoors. Something that can be ran year-round, which will support my son and I without the fear of slow business during the rainy season. I dream of owning several more businesses in the future, and getting this business where I envision financially will allow me to do so.
