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

A loan helped open up our storefront to sell Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream.

Rachel's story

I can't remember a time when I didn't love food; In my baby book it says, "loves cake." I started baking with my grandmas, Betty and Ardath when I was 5 or 6 years old. By the time I was around 8 or 10 years old, I can remember drawing a picture of a yellow house with a big wrap-around porch and imagining it was my very own restaurant. Scratch-made bakery items, specifically the recipes I made with my grandmas have created for my family, are all about loving people enough to take the time, and use really good ingredients to create a happy experience and warm memories. I love seeing people smile, laugh, and connect with each other when they eat a really delicious piece of the pie, homemade cookie, or a slice of cake. I also like that owning a business allows me to meet and mentor young people through employment and business opportunities.
