Allison's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped grow my woman owned construction business.
I am a UW-Madison graduate with an Industrial Engineering degree. Almost immediately upon graduating, I was hit by a drunk driver in a car accident and suffered a terrible brain injury that left me with migraines and memory loss, and I was declared disabled, with no hope or prediction of improvement; but against all odds, I made a full recovery years later. When I felt I wanted to return to work, I got a job through a friend at a construction company as a laborer. I found it harder to sit still for long periods after the accident and planned on it being just a temporary job. About a year later, I was running the company and eventually started my own company. I focus mainly on remodeling because each job is different and I enjoy the challenge of coming up with unique solutions to accommodate homeowners dreams.
