Crystal's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped in the purchase for a beauty line to enrich health & self care for women.
My name is Crystal. I pride myself in being a hard-working business woman that wears many hats. I am a single mother, volunteer worker, youth mentor, prospective foster mother, to name a few. I take each role and my family life very seriously. My goal in life was always to own my own business and with a very special touching inspiration it's coming to pass. In November 2019, I received some disturbing news. My 38 year old younger sister was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. My sister was a Beautician, youth facilitator, model, hair stylist and my pride and joy. Living in two different states hours away from each other traveling from New Jersey to North Carolina for over a year to care for my sister, I promised her that her Legacy will not die. My sister transitioned a year and a month later on December 2nd 2020. It was a great loss but I had to push through the hurt and pain. With this loss, Global YJR LLC dba YJR Trendz was birthed in the loving memory of my sister Yolanda Juanita Richardson. YJR Trendz is a small business built on love and compassion in the mere fact that Yolanda still had work to do and that I must continue her Legacy.
