Total loan: $7,000
Milwaukee, WI, United States / Arts

Lisa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me to purchase eco-friendly and fair trade items for the store and a computer and software system to run the store and keep track of over 60 local and fair trade artisans I help support.
I grew up interested in the world, travel and helping to eradicate barriers to reducing poverty globally. I became involved in supporting fair trade while studying international relations and development and women's studies in college. I worked in the field of international development. As a single parent I am "putting it all on the line" to bring this store to life, help others and build an e-commerce, story-driven marketplace.
