Jaclyn's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped buy necessary equipment to expand services and create 4 jobs in my community.
I was raised in a divorced household. Both of my parents did the best they could to provide for my siblings and I, but doing that meant they were gone a lot and I did not get to see them much. I am and have been for two decades now, very community driven, locally focused and concerned about the environment. I have always enjoyed cleaning, organizing, and helping others, which led me to my current career. My background and interest feed directly into my passion for and motivation for the business. Owning a laundromat allows me to help others. I get to help them individually in my daily interactions. I am able to make a positive impact on other local businesses, the environment and my small community. At the same time, I am able to be involved with my children and help them when needed. Being able to provide for my children and have a relationship with them motivates me to work hard and be successful in my business.
