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

A loan helped purchase equipment to produce my tapenade more efficiently, improve my website, and gain working capital so I can be able to launch two new exciting flavors.

Rebecca's story

I love olives & I love sharing my inventive kitchen creations. Originally, it was just with family & friends, but then, I was encouraged to try selling my famous olive tapenade. I was thrilled to launch it as a tiny business & am thrilled to see it growing. I can't wait add more flavors and see how far my business can go! Just so you know some more about me... for many years I worked for a small micro-enterprise organization in NYC & then later with many starting/expanding businesses as a Peace Corps Volunteer. I had always been interested in business, but then...the bug bit me -- big time! I love the exciting, flexible & innovative space that is found with small businesses & decided to put my tapenade recipe to work. I love having my own business. It is scary & rewarding; grueling & exhilarating; thinky (accounting/business planning/kitchen chemistry) & feely (tastes/textures/thrill of getting it right). It is all the things!!! I love it & want to do more of it.
