Melissa's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped fund the purchase of a product manufacturer, social media marketing, bulk bottles, jars, and making the transition from traditional labels to silk pressed labels, which is more cost effective.

Melissa's story

I grew up in a single family home with my 2 siblings. Raising 3 children was a difficult for my mother who struggled to put food on the table, work, and putting herself through college earning her Psychology Degree. My grandparents decided to take some of the burden from my mother and raised me as their own. I watched my grandmother, a school teacher tutor, opened up a music school in her home, provide piano lessons, and even owned and operated a lucrative travel business that ran tour's to and from Africa. My daughter suffered from eczema, and I suffered from hair loss. As a result of this, I created my own skincare line, became a Licensed Esthetician, and cured our skin care issues. I have received positive feedback and testimonials from family members and friends, that our product has restored their skin back to health. I had a near death experience and nearly lost my life. After miraculously being on life support for 48 hours, I promised myself and God if I made it through, nothing will stop me from introducing my products to the world! I was born for my journey!
