Frances's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped a B.O.B bring fashion for all sizes, philanthropy, and sustainability together.
My motto has always been, "I'm poor in dollars, but I'm rich in people," and truly, it is no exaggeration to say that I am obnoxiously wealthy when it comes to the amazing humans in my life. My "tribe," as I like to call them, is comprised of a diverse array of amazing men and women I am lucky enough to call friends and family: folks who have taught me everything from three-dimensional art techniques to wilderness survival, kind souls who have each nurtured my creative skills and inspired me to want to serve others. With Frankie Lew, my goal is to use the wealth of all of those lessons and all of those gifts to continue serving my community, bringing the rich tapestry of contributions from the people who have shaped my life to work for my business. What motivates me is absolute love for what I do: I love designing beautiful and functional clothing, I love people, and I love combining these passions by bringing my designs to a broad spectrum of people who might not otherwise be able to enjoy fashions that celebrate their body types. More than this, my name is quite literally on the line with Frankie Lew! I am eager to show the world just what Frankie Lew can do, and having my name on a successful clothing line that embodies my ideals will the culmination of a lifetime of effort.
