Halime's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me to continue to grow my Turkish restaurant which opened just before the pandemic.
I am originally from Mersin, Turkey. I came to the United States in 2008 when my ex-husband’s job transferred him to North Dakota. After several years and a divorce, I ended up moving to Pittsburgh with my kids in 2017. When I was in North Dakota, I worked in a Turkish restaurant. However, I found driving for Uber in Pittsburgh paid more and helped me learn English. Over 2 years, I saved to start my own Turkish restaurant.
