Cecilia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped purchase more inventory for my handcrafted items in order for my customers to have wider selection to choose from.
I am originally from Michoacan, Mexico where I witness by mother selling the same items which I do. It is because of my experience with her and helping her run the business that inspired me to do mine. She taught me the sales of hand crafted items and I knew one day I would be selling just like she did. I arrived to California at the age of 28 and now have 16 years in the states. I decided to finally make the dream of selling handcrafted items like my mom not to long ago and now my only wish is that this business becomes stable and reliable.
