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

A loan helped to assist my business during the COVID 19 shutdown in Oregon.

Shavaun's story

My love for travel was largely funded by a variety of front of the house positions in restaurants and bars around the world, which not only provided flexible funds to launch a trip, but a reliable choice for work in other countries, when I went over budget. After a career in Real Estate and Construction, I purchased a commercial building on the North Oregon Coast for rehab in 2015. While working on the property, I became aware of a gap in services in the area; the need for a quiet evening lounge. My vision was to offer a romantic spot for the weekending couples, or a quiet retreat for meeting families and friends. I believed I had the experience to create a showcase for the Pacific NW's fantastic local breweries, local farms cheese selections, and offer visitors education about local marine life, and our impact on its environment. In addition, by maintaining a consistent schedule, I would encourage business from area locals often frustrated by a lack of options during later evening hours and the slower off-season.
