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


A loan helped us buy new computer equipment to grow the business and provide health insurance and training for 5 workers.


Temi's story

I studied software engineering at Jacksonville State Alabama and met my wife at a programming class. We both love breaking apart PC or electronic parts as we are intrigued by how they work, what makes them tick, and how to fix them when they break. Everything about IT or Tech fascinates me and I love waking up every day with my wife trying to figure out the next cool things we can develop or make existing systems better. My parents are immigrants from West Africa but I grew up in New York where my passion for computers flourished. My parents were not rich by any means but they supported my dreams and provided for me the best they could and I love them for it and am eternally grateful. After college, I found Texas surprisingly to be an excellent location to live and also start a business and my wife was excited as well for the new adventure. It has been barely 2 years and we were able to develop a custom software solution for seamless video rendering over the internet which also shrinks huge size files for quick upload and download. I want to give back to Texas where we were able to create the business and hire and train young men and women part-time but we need to scale our business to buy more equipment. This will allow us to retain our young employees and provide better benefits.
