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

A loan helped a woman and refugee-owned home childcare center better serve the children in its community.

Sholeh's story

My name is Sholeh. I was born in Iran and came to the United States as a refugee in 2005. I came here along with six sisters and brothers, my husband, and my two sons. We have all worked hard here to create a better life. Personally, I like to cook, sew, garden, paint, and more – a little of almost everything. I especially like working with children, which is how my business came about. Today, I live with my family in Maine, where I have been running a home childcare center for the last several years.
