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

A loan helped a woman build out a new office/shop space for her landscaping business and its sister nonprofit.

Marci's story

I moved to the Rochester area in the fall of 1976, following my graduation from college and subsequent marriage. After several years of bookkeeping jobs, I decided to return to college and pursue a career that would take me outside. Upon completing my Associates in Ornamental Horticulture, I launched a career that I love and has carried me for the past 36 years. I owned a landscape business for 20 years that had a stellar reputation and was the recipient of numerous design awards within the industry. I also taught part-time at our local community college in the Horticulture Department, which reinforced my commitment to connect people with jobs.
