A loan helped a woman, minority owned business to get the capital she needs to scale her existing business.

Mireille's story

Maison Palo Santo is just as much a story of love and transformation as it is business. Living and working in NYC, we both hit burnout from our corporate jobs. We knew we wanted to be in business for ourselves, but even more importantly make an impact on this world. We are both passionate about home decor, aromatherapy and international cultures as our families span from the USA, Morocco, Ecuador, and France. We speak 4 languages between us and this gift has allowed us to venture out into the world with the mission to create high-quality products that help people feel well, and also give back to local communities at the same time. We niched our line of products down from carpets, pillows, and candles all the way down to aromatherapy candles. Since we love nature just as much as we love people, we decided that our business model would be inspired by nature by using only the best botanical ingredients while giving back to the dry tropical forest of Ecuador by donating the funds to purchase one palo santo seedling for every product sold. We deliver the power of nature through our products, and we hope to infuse each order with love, respect, positivity, and joy. Palo Santo is our Passion. Inspiring others is our Mission. Laughter is our Medicine. Love is our Existence. As of now, we are focused on building our brand through the endless possibilities of e-commerce so we can reach more people to uplift! We want to create jobs for women especially in Ecuador, but also in our local community in the USA. We believe that anything is possible through positive encouragement and education.
