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

A loan helped move Pip & Lola's to a new location in a high traffic business district and upgrade soap making and retail equipment.

Samantha's story

We are the proud parents of nine children (at the moment). We have 6 children for whom we biologically take the blame plus three more that the PA Foster Care system has blessed us with. Plus 2 cats and a dog. We currently live Munhall, a small town outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, having moved here three years ago from Tacoma, Washington. Bruce was formerly an elementary school teacher and Samantha was previously a real estate agent. We are both heavily involved in the Arts, specifically theater. We both love to donate our time and what little bit of extra money we have to keeping small Arts organizations running. We are huge fans of the barter economy and have exchanged our soap for a variety of things including babysitting, photography, and the occasional coffee maker.
