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

A loan helped fund the purchase of ingredients and a new freezer so we can recover from the complete loss of our inventory and prepare for growth in the Spring.

Katie & Christa's story

Christa and I both grew up around small business and entrepreneurship. My parents owned a small trucking company for 30+ years in Minneapolis, MN and Christa's parents owned a sporting goods store and worked in real estate in Dallas, TX. We both learned at a very young age that owning a business is rewarding but also very difficult. We both feel lucky to have had exposure to small business and to have watched our parents struggle and succeed. When we realized there was a significant gap in the ice cream market, we knew that starting our own company to fill that niche was an option. And we knew that it wasn't going to be easy. When we set about to build a company we wanted to do two things: create a quality product and an equitable work environment. We are always working to do both of those things better every day.
