Candice's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped Southeastern Roastery purchase a larger coffee roaster than what I am currently roasting on and will provide financing for cooperative, health code abiding kitchen space.
I was born in Lawton Oklahoma and grew up in Richmond and Sterling, Virginia. Having grown up in the suburbs of Washington DC, I have been able to watch the city grown and transform into one with a strong coffee culture. This is why I have stayed in DC to launch my business. In the future, I plan to have my own coffee roasting facility equipped with bag storage and packaging credentials so to no longer have to roast in cooperative kitchens and shared spaces. This will allow my company to grow in way that is not coupled with another business.
