Lina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped my company overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis and to continue creating new jobs.
Hello, my name is Lina and I am from Colombia, where I lived all my life, until I came to the United States 6 years ago. Back in Colombia, I was a lawyer and had my own law firm with several employees. However, the economic problems and violence that my country suffers ended up affecting both my business and my family. We constantly receive threats from criminals, and then one day my brother kidnapped and murdered him. That day I made the decision to leave the country and find a way to provide a better life for my two children. So now I live with my husband in California, where I started my own business to be able to financially support my children in Colombia. My main dream is to make my business prosper and grow, and reunite with the children.
