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

A loan helped me to recover from COVID-19.

Joel's story

Hi, my name is Joel, owner of Collective Request along with my life partner Ashley. We are born and raised in Puerto Rico and live in Old San Juan, where we opened our store in an iconic building of the old city at Calle Luna. Ashley has worked in fashion since she was 15 years old, and I got involved into fashion with her since 2011. Collective Request started as an online shop on 2013, and in 2015 opened our store in San Juan. I studied Business Administration and she studied Fashion Merchandising and Design, and Advertising.
