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

A loan helped me hire employees and buy equipment as I move into a kiosk to serve more customers and expand my wholesale clients.

Tina's story

I was born in San Francisco. In middle school my family moved to Oakland. My family has aways had entrepreneurs. My grandmother, my father and it continues with me. My business started with a need. The bakery my family went to closed after being in business for 81 years. I felt the need to come up with desserts that would hit the spot. The orders started coming in after I made my own wedding cake. With the help of La Cocina and Centro Community Partners I have created a profitable business that continues to grow every year. I love creating something that makes people happy I love being part of a celebration that's the best part of my business. I would also like the happiness to extend to my employees . I will pay a competitive wage and as we grow keep the opportunity for advancement within my company. I want them to feel like they are part of what makes the business a success.
