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

A loan helped a black woman-owned business grow and expand to help those with severe skin conditions.

Aneicia's story

Mother, model, maker—I am the founding inventor and owner of Coco Melanin, eczema sensitive, 100% Vegan skincare line inspired by my youngest daughter. I spent most of my professional career in customer service and, eventually, entered the medical administration field with a specialization in EKG monitoring and health unit coordination. In 2020, during the global pandemic, I decided to take my homemade, organic products to market after much fanfare from friends and family. Outside of my day job at the hospital, I am usually with my children, modeling, or filling increasing orders for Coco Melanin. I am a healthcare and skincare expert whose commitment to ending my daughter’s suffering has led to my own economic empowerment. I am a dynamo and powerhouse dedicated to building a legacy for my family and community.
