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

A loan helped a minority-owned community event space continue to support women, BIPOC, and the LGBTQIA+ community.

Michelle's story

I am a Haitian-American woman with a passion for giving a voice to those of us who are often discarded and marginalized in the greater conversation. I am a writer and event planner who took my creative interests and passion for creating safe spaces and community to start a business with a singular mission. I am close to my family and the youngest of three. I am motivated by connecting artists, community activists, entrepreneurs to one another. I am motivated by creative expression, living my purpose, and remaining connected to my roots. I love having space where new friendships, business ideas, and mind-blowing creative projects are built from the ground up. I currently lead a vibrant and affirming community-led event space centered on inclusivity, gender equity, creative expression, and celebration of identity. I am determined to maintain this important mission and business until we all get to the other side of this pandemic.
