Ryan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped open a woman-owned indie bookshop, cafe, art gallery, and community space.

Ryan's story

I have always dreamed of opening a small bookshop/ cafe and now have the ideal opportunity to turn the dream into a reality. I am primarily motivated in my life to put good out into the world and my work has reflected that. While I did work in a coffee shop/ bookstore in college I have primarily worked in healthcare. I believe that stories can change the world and I want to bring a bookshop to my town. My community and the surrounding rural towns either make a long drive into downtown or order from Amazon. I would like to bring back the small town bookshop and all the community building that comes with it.
