Rashima's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped helps me to hire a team, purchase equipment and scale my business to expand into the wedding industry to offer fashionable, customized and sustainable handmade bow ties.

Rashima's story

Being raised in a single parent household, I always pondered on what life would be like with both parents. More importantly, imagining on the possible golden nuggets or heirlooms bestowed from both. By having an innate talent in the arts I used my skills to craft family narratives in my handcrafted bow ties. Through my personal and educational experience, the most valuable thing that we all have is family and the memories that live on. My hope and dream is that I can make a positive impact in people’s lives—whether it be from a philanthropic perspective or from the handcrafted goods from my business. The overarching goal is to create a successful business that can not only provide for my family, but give me the opportunity to have my handcrafted ties be a part of my customers lives, an unforgettable memory and tradition that will transcend time.
