Tereza's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped a woman owned business to renovate an airstream camper to be used as a mobile lactation clinic.
I am a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner and lactation consultant (IBCLC) that realized the need for more access to breastfeeding support in my community. I started my career as a RN in 2009 as a pediatric ICU and ER nurse. After my youngest child (of 4) turned 1 , I decided to go back to grad school to become a nurse practitioner to further my passion for caring for women across the lifespan. After facing many obstacles to breastfeeding and not feeling well cared for or supported, I realized that I can offer my experience and expertise to help empower women and to help them grow in confidence in their ability to nourish their babies.
