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

A loan helped me to sustain my business during COVID-19.

Amber's story

I am from the city of Cleveland, ohio raised in an overall large family. Most of my family has an education or sustained a long term career, or have raised their own families. Me things have been different. I learned early own that I was non traditional. A background in marketing but the desire to bet on myself. It wasn’t until i was injured at my previous job and went through being off , that i reflected on what my life would be like. I knew I felt stagnant. I needed to keep busy but I also needed to generate income to sustain. So in 2015, I sat and thought of what I am good at. I realized I loved creating drinks for family members and guests. I knew I needed to still make something happen for my family. I needed to keep pushing even though I was injured and feeling very much down, I refused to not use this time to make something happen. Knowing that my family backs me on my decision, I began to really learn my craft. But more importantly I learned that I need to make my footprint in my family and in this world. So I kept going.
