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

A loan helped me to grow my business by providing coaching services to other business owners.

Patricia's story

My name is Patricia. I am a client of the Florida Women's Business Center in Delray Beach, which helped me develop my business roadmap. Spending 23 years in the Army in leadership positions gave me the experience I needed to make sound and timely decisions, including retirement in 2010. This was a tough decision to provide stability for my son who was a high school student. As a single parent, serving an extraordinarily strong support system is needed. That rock was my mother. Every deployment, service school, and training, she was there to fill my void. This time was different because I made a promise to my son to be home for his high school years. I acquired a job I enjoyed after retirement. I was able to problem-solve, mentor others, analyze individual performance and give feedback towards their goals. Simultaneously, I perused my MBA degree. With Covid 19 on the rise, many of my friends started to worry about their jobs, finances, and the issues at work. My son said, “Mommy, we should start a business from home doing what you are doing now, helping all these people”. He reminded me that I had helped many people over the years, and I am well suited to do this as a business owner. After months of research, I decided to open the Rapid Financial Rebirth LLC with my son by my side. Using the money that I had left in savings, I started enrolling in programs, got our EIN, purchased some software and domains. Having to live off our savings and no job put a strain on our account. This Loan will put us on track as we continue to give our best to our community..
