A loan helped to fix the facade of my storefront, boost our advertising, replace old equipment and employ others.

Lexis's story

My name is Lexis, co-owner of Lady Lexis Sweets. I love to eat desserts and that's how the idea of the confection shop came to be. I grew up in Harlem in the building right above my shop. It was great when I was growing up. Everyone knew each other and it felt like a real community. I still live in Harlem now and it has blossomed into an even better community for food, shopping, and living.I opened my shop at the age of 22 with a toddler and pregnant with my second son. Today I bake in my shop daily and work in my shop. My boys hang with me in my shop daily and watch me work hard to provide for them. I hope to exponentially grow to have fresh breads as well as my full line of cookies, candies, cakes in my shop as well as other outlets. I want to show my sons the power of believing in yourself through my sweets.
