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

A loan helped us expand our business, create new marketing materials, and replace equipment.

Kayla's story

We are three sisters that decided to start our own business as a fun way to spend time together as well as build something between our family. Entrepreneurship is in our blood, as our mom started her own successful business in Southern Ohio, where we grew up. What makes us such a great team are the individual talents that we three bring to the table: Kayla's the creative one with our branding and menu, Ashley is our financial whiz, and Amber is the one with the fantastic people skills. Kayla's sons are also included in the business as our product test-monkeys; the two-year old is our biggest fan and anytime he sees a Chinese carton (what we serve our shaved ice in) he gets the biggest smile of anticipation on his face! Our dreams for the future are to continue to grow the business and become the go-to summer treat stop in the summer. In New Orleans, lines go around the block with families waiting to get a snoball, and we know it'll be the same in Columbus. This is our second Kiva loan that we are requesting, our first was successful and paid back in full 4 months early!
