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

A loan helped this woman-owned buy inventory for the next upcoming year, secure a warehouse, and grow our company.

Janese's story

In 2017 I was diagnosed with lupus nephritis. My doctors noticed that lupus was aggressively attacking my kidneys. So, my doctor suggested I do chemotherapy treatment right away. During chemo I was searching for natural ways to help support my immune system to help prevent colds and infections. That is when I stumbled across elderberry. I found an elderberry syrup online. After adding a few more immune supporting herbs I made my very own elderberry syrup. I noticed that I wasn’t getting any colds or infections while on chemo which is very rare. I immediately began sharing this syrup with my husband and children. To my surprise they had the same results! Many of my family members and church members started buying my elderberry syrup and they loved it so much they told everybody. Once COVID hit my business took off and the demand became very high. Now I have created over 5 more elderberry products with our Elderberry Lemonade and Elderberry Tea Bags being our best-sellers. We also are in 9 stores in the South FL region.
