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

A loan helped us to get equipment for our business and survive this COVID-19 pandemic.

Charley's story

I'm a Marine veteran who loves to cook and provide a service to the local community. After serving over 13 years in the Marine Corps, I knew it was time to make a change. I took a contracting job and thought life was good. After loosing that job to the government shutdown, we decided it was time to make a way for ourselves. I grew up in south Mississippi and figured since I learned southern cuisine, why not attend culinary school and get the additional knowledge to become a chef. After graduating, I worked in a few kitchens but wanted to run my own business so we bought a hot dog cart to get started.
