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

A loan helped me to bring back employees, at least part time and purchase inventory.

Donald's story

I was born and raised in the City of West Allis. My entire work career has been in this city. I am very active in the community. I am the head of the West Allis Christmas Parade Committee, which I literally started 12 years ago. I also am the committee chair person for the largest event in the city, West Allis A La Carte. We draw over 14,000 people to this event. I'm also a board member of the Chamber of Commerce, Downtown West Allis Business Improvement District and an organization called CAAD, which is citizens alliance against drugs. I have been in this business for 28 years. I love working with people. I have made many friends over the years, both socially and through business associates. My business sells both home goods and business related products.
