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

A loan helped to expand our investment in the vending machine area of our industry by purchasing 8 additional vending machines.

Michelle's story

I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. My parents relocated to the north side of Milwaukee when I was 16. I'm the oldest of 5 children. I've resided on the north side of Milwaukee for more than 20 years now. I graduated from Custer H.S. after becoming a teen parent. I was constantly told by peers and family that I wouldn't amount to anything or finish school because I had a baby. I did not let the negative voices stop me. I was determined not to fail, I kept employment and pursued any opportunities that would allow personal growth. At a young age I received training and opened my own childcare center that I successfully owned and operated for 10 years. Now, I am excited about my current role and strive to consistently provide excellent services to our customers in the food service and HVAC industry. We are working to grow our business for our children and future generations that will benefit the residence and entrepreneurs in the city of Milwaukee.
