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

A loan helped a minority woman-owned business upgrade equipment to enhance the quality of my products.

Shawnel's story

I am the proud owner of Silverfoxx Wear & Things LLC. I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA where I received an Associates Degree in Radiology at C.C.A.C Boyce Campus and was hired as an X-Ray Tech at Allegheny General Hospital. I later went back to school to receive two additional degrees in Community Ministries with a B.S and an M.S in Professional Counseling. My career experience is all about care and compassion for others and I share the same sentiment when I design t-shirts for my customers. I care about what my customers want to convey on a t-shirt and I utilize compassion in carrying out their wishes in which they have an end product that they are pleased with. Designing t-shirts for a customer gives me great joy because I am able to offer my customers an opportunity to express themselves through my product. I believe expression and having a voice are very important considering the times we are currently living in. My goal is to grow my business where I am able to hire staff, increase my clientele, and ultimately gain a vending contract with UPMC.
