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

A loan helped our business, Outlaw Soaps, to continue to grow! We've just hired a couple new employees and this loan of $10,000 will help us redesign our website to grow even more!

Danielle's story

When Russ and I founded Outlaw Soaps, we were living in Los Angeles in a big warehouse with a bunch of other people. Even though our lives didn't resemble it at the time, we had a grand vision of moving out to the country and having a house with chickens, goats, and a garden. I wanted guests to come and enjoy this life with us. We went to work trying to figure out what business would enable us to move out to the country. After quite a lot of research, we came to realize that soaps are a very good business and can be done from anywhere with a workshop. Once we had the vision for the soaps, we knew we could create them in ways that were evocative of the life we wanted. We also knew what our friends wanted -- lives filled with whiskey, campfire, wilderness, bacon, and magic. So was born Outlaw Soaps. Over the past six years, we have been working tirelessly to make that vision a reality. Business has grown with significant help from such customers as Whole Foods, Amazon, and several boutiques across the US (including the Wyoming Territorial Prison!). We have been featured in Yahoo!, WIRED, VICE, Food Network Magazine, Oakland Magazine, Uncrate, and many other totally reputable media outlets. We now have hired 4 people from the local area and are actively trying to grow the local economy. ABOUT US - Russ and Danielle Vincent We've been friends for more than 14 years, in a relationship for 7, and married for 6. Our non-soap life is made out of laughter, adventure, road trips, and camping. The rest of our life is soap, and that's a wonderful life. Thank you for supporting our business. It really means a lot to us.
