Ben's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped me to purchase additional inventory, renew kitchen rental space and boost advertising efforts.
I was raised in Northern Virginia, the middle of three boys. The majority of our childhood was spent playing sports and more specifically on the basketball court. This is where I would come to fall in love with the game and eventually go on to play in high school, college and ultimately overseas. Basketball not only opened up doors for me in terms of education and cultural experiences, but it taught me about hard work, persistence, and dedication toward a specific craft. These traits have been vital throughout these early days of Favor, as I am currently maintaining a full-time job in the music industry while working nights and weekends on this business to make Favor into the health and wellness disruptor that I know it can be. Although my playing days are over, I take pride in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I believe strongly in the idea of balance, however, which is ultimately where the idea for Favor arose. No longer am I willing or able to dedicate excessive time and resources to my health with my active lifestyle. I need a quicker option that I trust and that is what I am hoping to create.
