Tresha's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped helps to provide capital necessary to increase our advertising budget, order additional startup inventory, and bring quality dance products to the community.
My name is Tresha Nash and I have lived in Fairbanks, Alaska for 20 years. My husband is retired military and we now call this beautiful city home. I am the mother of 6 kids and 3 grandchildren, who all have all been involved in the dance and theater community here. Though there are over 8 dance studios in town, along with several aerial studios, and numerous school cheer teams, gymnastics clubs, and more, I have found it difficult to find the necessary dance attire locally. Living in Interior Alaska, means being a 5 hour drive (or a 1 hour flight) the next largest city, which can be a significant and expensive obstacle to overcome! I knew that there were others who also wanted to be able to find what they need, when they need it, rather than having to order on-line, or travel great distances to get it. With this in mind, I decided to go back to school to get my Applied Business degree, from the University of Alaska Community & Technical College, and open a retail dance and fitness wear store in my community.
