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

A loan helped pay for the first phase of the renovation of Mister Bar-B-Que South. The loan also will finance Freddie's Community Grill fest.

Jervel's story

I had the pleasure of meeting my father one year after my mother passed away. He was known in the community for being a father figure to many young people in the inner city. As a Butcher, my father would save up to buy meat at a discounted rate, just to host free monthly barbecues to feed the community. My father was a wise man, and there’s was a comment that he made, which resonates within my mind daily, and that was “Give the people what they want,” and till this day, that’s exactly what I’ve been doing “Giving the people what they want.” bringing the community together by serving delicious barbeque, and encouraging the spirit of the community through food. Once my mother shared with me her secret combination of smoked wood, and utilizing my father’s keen eye for a beautiful piece of barbeque, I’ve carried their legacy on, starting with just a “Hot Dog Cart”, to a “Food Truck”, and now the expansion into another restaurant. “The Sky is The Limit”.
