Total loan: $6,000
Fond Du Lac, WI, United States / Arts

Amy's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped with marketing, art supplies, and materials for classes and lighting updates.
Art is a God given gift and I feel that I have it for a reason. So, on my birthday (10/18), I took a leap of faith and left my 50hr/week job! SCARY! It had been taking me away from my family for years, I decided to go for it, and invested everything I had to purchase the building at 123 S. Main St in Fond du Lac Wi. on March 11th, 2020 and my 2 girls and I moved into the studio apartment above the commercial space below. Seemed like a win/win right? WRONG! COVID orders passed only a few days after, and between trying to obtain funding, and work on cosmetic renovations,.my efforts came to a screeching HALT. Only for a few days though, I decided to paint a mural on the side of the building which gained a lot of interest in grey times. From there, I started doing commission pieces and selling yard art to keep income coming in.
