Oakland, CA, United States / Education

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

A loan helped pay an application fee needed to start a Barber School in Oakland CA.

Christopher's story

I grew up in San Mateo California in the 70’s and 80’s prior to the Silicon Valley Boom. I started barbering after I completed an enlistment in the U.S. Army. Afterwards I went to college and worked in corporate America for several years. I had a passion for barbering since high school therefore I decided to attend barber college after I was terminated from my job in 2003. Since then I never looked backed. Currently I’m a successful licensed barber at a prominent barbershop for over 10 years in Oakland CA. I plan to use the leadership skills I developed in the military to launch a state of the art barbering school that will produce gainfully employable barbers and business professionals.
