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

A loan helped grow my small business by hiring an employee and upgrading equipment.

Lydia's story

Nearly six years ago all I had was a prayer, a dream and my income tax return. I prayed hard about it and took a big leap of faith on starting an emergency roadside assistance company. In the beginning I struggled to find the money to put fuel into the gas tank of my beat up van but I never gave up and things got better. I now have a steady call volume and have become more civically engaged. At times I find myself overwhelmed with all my responsibilities I took on especially since COVID-19 occurred. I am a full time student at MCC, studying Urban Studies. I facilitate a Parent Leadership Program and am involved in several neighborhood associations and groups. The icing on the cake would have to be the fact that two of my children have been taking virtual class since March. I have been called Superwoman by many but truth be told ....I need some help!
