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

A loan helped me to be able to stay open and relocate.

Stanley's story

I am a disabled veteran with over 20 years of military service in the United States Army. I was medically retired due to injuries suffered in combat in 2013. Upon my retirement, I decided to get a formal education at Central Texas Community College (CTC) and graduated with an Associate of Arts (AA). After that, I attended The Art Institute of Austin for a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and successfully graduated with a 3.96 GPA. Currently, I am attending Full Sail University and I will graduate in March 2021 with a Master of Fine Arts Media Design (MFAMD). I am grateful that my GI-Bill and the Veterans Affairs has paid for part of the two undergraduate degrees but I am paying for the graduate degree. This $36,000 was not planned when I opened my business. My passion for the arts is not just something I stumbled upon and this is why I have opened Premium PIX Studios. So that I and many other artists like myself have a place to create. There is a big hole that was opened with all the big box stores closing and so many people for years relying on those places for imagery. This is why I know that my business will continue to prosper for many years.
