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

A loan helped a minority woman owned business achieve her most outsized goals and dreams.

Lucienne's story

Being a business owner is a part of my DNA. As a young child growing up in South America, I was surrounded by family members that were entrepreneurs ( but I didn't know the word). They created and sold merchandise and various goods and services. At age 24, I opened my first business and have been an entrepreneur ever since. I am motivated and passionate about business and entrepreneurship, as I enjoy seeing the process go from inception to completion as well as the opportunity to create financial independence for myself.
