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


A loan helped to purchase more vans, hire staff, and increase working capital for my transportation business serving students in Brooklyn.


Alisha's story

I am the mother to three beautiful children ages 12, 5, 1. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York raised mostly by my mother and grandmother who passed in 2012. During my adolescent years I moved a few times between New York, and Norfolk, Virginia due to the separation and abusive relationship between my parents. In 2011 I married my husband who is currently incarcerated. Before starting my own business in 2016 I worked as enrollment specialist at the NYC Department of Education. I always knew I wanted something more than a 9-5 but for years I let my fear of the unknown over power my dreams. My husband repeatedly encouraged me until I took my first leap of faith. I still remember to this day him saying to me "You can always get another job, you only have one time to live your dreams". One thing growing up in this big city, surviving several traumatic experiences, having a incarcerated husband, and being a single mother has taught me is to be resilient. My overall goal for my company to one of the largest children transportation company in the USA. I would like to provide transportation in all 50 states.
