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

A loan helped me expand my quickly growing business. We have developed a following and I’d love to be able to support the influx of the demand. We need the loan for event planning, staffing, inventory, and vendor fees, and other business expenses.

Carla's story

I personally grew up bouncing around because of a very unstable addict mother. My grandparents and aunt did the best they could caring for me full time but eventually it was to much. I ended up in foster care from 7th-12th grade. I did go to college for theater and dance and through shows and events I learned what I pull from to theme my shop and special events. I was married for almost seven years, but my husband became ill with a brainstem cavernoma in September of 2012. We attempted surgery in December of 2012, but he wasn’t able to recover. It left me and my precious three year old little boy alone. That was December of 2012, and sometimes I can’t believe it’s been 7 years. I’m eternally grateful for my son, he and I are a great team and he’s such a precious boy. I’m grateful today for everything I went through. I appreciate every ounce of my business, the support from close friends, family, and customers. I’d love for our future to keep growing and I think with my personal situation being the one responsible for everything it makes me work even harder.
