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

A loan helped reduce COVID related rent/utility indebtedness & perform some critical network upgrades.

Judith's story

Video games are dreams with controllers and keyboards—my business has been helping individuals identify and achieve their dreams for the past 6 years. My son brought me into this world of fantasy, simulation, strategy, role-playing, and competition many years ago. My grandchildren continue to keep me in awe of video games and the ways they can benefit players. I became aware of the importance for ardent gamers to have a place to meet as a community, but that space had to be special. We designed the concept for my business to provide a place where gamers can gather to receive mentoring, or to mentor others. Our center is a place where local communities of like-minded gamers can gather in a single, secure, comfortable space to enjoy games together, and increase their skills and confidence. It was particularly important for the center to be welcoming to everyone who wants to play from pre-teens to seniors. We are a smoke/drug/alcohol free environment and we created a safe browsing environment to make our center work for everyone. I am a working owner involved in many aspects of the business from administration to planning and marketing. COVID created a major challenge for us, which is on going. However, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I am ready to meet the challenges head on.
