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

A loan helped us survive the COVID-19 temporary business closure.

Kaori's story

I am from Japan, and I studied Thai massage in Thailand a long time ago. I had a massage business in Japan for two years, then got married to someone from Wisconsin and moved here in 2005. I have had my business for over 11 years and have a large number of clients. I started to hire employees in 2018. We love what we do, helping people in our community. We moved to a much bigger new space just a year ago, with 4 treatment rooms. We were just about to start making money, then the COVID-19 came. I am fighting to stay open for our loyal clients. Everyone loves us, we get 5 stars all the time, and our customers are all patiently waiting for us to be back in business soon. However, as a health care provider, I understand the circumstances with this emergency shut down and the need to try and slow down the virus. English is my second language, I moved here when I was 37. I don’t speak perfect English, but I guess I know what is important and when to ask for help.
