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

A loan helped a black woman-owned business expand to the business of her dreams and provide jobs in the community!

Marquita's story

I have always been a person to put on productions. As an only child, I would rearrange my room into a party central for my dolls for all of their made-up celebrations. As I grew into a young woman, I began to help on the backend with fashion shows that I modeled in. Starting at 17, I began to co-produce large scale fashion shows. That continued for a few years and in 2010, I began to produce my own large scale event. During this time I continued to produce smaller events and fell more in love with the outcomes. I continue to do this business today because celebrations are the heartbeat of families. It's what brings people together. In these uncertain times, it is the only thing some people have to look forward to. My mission is to make my clients' concept, use my connections, and create spaces that are beautiful, memorable, and inspiring.
