A loan helped a black woman owned business grow despite the setbacks of COVID19.
In 2018, I became a first-time single mother to fraternal twins. Upon returning back to work from leave, I realized that my job, like many other employers, was not accommodating to fit my needs. Constantly requesting time off for doctor visits and other baby-related appointments, being passed over for work assignments and missing 1st year important milestones motivated me to become self-employed. I knew that if done on MY terms, I'd be able to balance both career and motherhood. I walked away from retail in 2019 & have not looked back.
