A loan helped a minority-owned business expand and create opportunity.
As a son of a single black woman, I understand how individuals in society can be overlooked and faced with uncertainty when it comes to employment and advancement. My mother dealt with this and decided to create for herself. As a result, she was able to provide for me and my siblings, enough for me to go to college and have a prospering career in education administration. I wanted continue my mother's legacy and create something that will allow others that are disadvantaged to come into a field and prosper. That field is baking due to my fondness for food. My fondness and desire to develop and help others has made me commit to opening and expanding my bakery.
