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

Grecia's story

I was born in Venezuela but migrated to the US in my early adulthood. I completed an associate's degree in business administration. Over the years before getting married, I had multiple jobs where I learned about customer service, bookkeeping, and administrative skills in different industries. Once married, I kept working but having a child was my priority, therefore I was looking to open a business without compromising leaving home. During the year of the pandemic, the idea of opening my own business came to me while searching for snacks for my husband, who is a vegetarian. I considered myself a woman with an entrepreneurial spirit, so I began to make my idea a reality. My motivation to start my business was not only my family but the need that I saw to have an online store of snacks that removes barriers for the customers. I see this business growing and become successful more than it already is.
