A loan helped a woman-owned business hire workers & buy equipment to grow a small business.
Cake saved my life! I was in-between jobs and desperately seeking a career I was passionate about. I love to make people smile, which is why I began my small business of cake decorating. I started in a home kitchen, with limited space and resources. I sold at my local Farmers Market and developed a grass-roots following. Because of my loyal customers, my business has grown. I am now seeking a kitchen/building of my own and to do that, I need to hire employees, purchase equipment and inventory. It warms my heart every time I see a person's face light up because I created something special--in my kitchen--for their celebration. The sacrifice is minimal and the reward is MAXIMAL!
