A loan helped to further develop my invention, the IERT (Intestinal Excrement Removal Tool).
In 1994, members of my family were suffering from impacted bowels. As a personal care assistant, I was able to help them on a daily basis by removing the fecal excrements that were impacted in their bowels and causing additional health issues. After assisting both family and myself, I realized that there's got to be a better way to solve this problem. So, about 20 years ago, I came up with the IERT. I invented The IERT (Intestinal Excrement Removal Tool) to use on myself and family members. Seeing how effective the tool was, I decided to take a chance and move forward with producing the product. The IERT is a dream I've been trying to fulfill so that people suffering from fecal impaction no longer have to live in silence.
