Adrienne's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me achieve financial success and freedom, by becoming a first-time business owner.
I started my journey as a barista at the age of 18. The highlight of my day was providing the service to make someone else’s day brighter. In my many years of working in the coffee industry, I’d been offered many jobs due to my enthusiasm and efficiency. A couple of times I accepted. However, those jobs never allowed me the opportunity to grow and excel to my full potential. I’d missed interacting with my regulars and providing a service that elevated my craft. It wasn’t until one of my clients offered me my first manager job, where I lead the transition of this treat shop, into becoming a frozen treat coffee shop. Once I’d gained the confidence and managerial experience, I thought “why not create my own shop”.
