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

A loan helped purchase products & grow my non-toxic, cruelty-free beauty business!

Emma's story

I grew up in a small town in Central California, and surrounded by many cotton and cornfields, and lived here my entire life until I was about 18 years old. As soon as I graduated high school, I went off to Chico State for college, I only lasted about 3 months because I was terribly homesick and had no idea what I wanted to major in, none of the subjects caught my eye and I had always dreamed of working for myself and being a businesswoman. After returning home I started entering into beauty pageants which is where my skincare and beauty industry journey began. Shortly after, I attended and graduated from beauty school and became a licensed esthetician in the state of California. I turned "lashing" into a full-time job and I plan to expand into online sales selling lash growth serum and many other clean, non-toxic, and safe beauty products. In the future, I would love to be in Sephora, Ulta, or Target. I know my dad would be proud as I got my entrepreneurial spirit from him, he owns a very successful gym in our hometown.
