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


A loan helped open my business, buy equipment and pay for initial plumbing, electrical and remodeling costs.


Ana's story

My name is Ana Gonzalez and I love to bake and decorate cakes and make floral arrangements. At the age of 24, I wanted to spend more time with my 1 year old daughter and the idea of selling chocolate covered strawberries and floral arrangements took place. The happiness of putting the arrangement together and imagining the other person’s reaction upon delivery were my everyday spark to make this business happen. Later on, my family motivated me to add baked goods to my business. Since I was a little girl, I enjoyed baking cookies and small cakes for my family. I didn’t just want my cakes to taste good, but I wanted them to look great as well. This challenged me to learn cake decorating skills. After a few books, many YouTube videos and lots and lots of practice, I can recreate almost any cake decoration. Who knew my A+ art class grades when I was younger would play such an important role? My passion is to elevate others, to make them happy. The reaction I receive from people when they see the end result of the personalized cake or arrangement is the fuel that will transport this small business to a large corporate company one day.
