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

A loan helped a minority woman-owned business upgrade equipment and grow our small business.

Lachone's story

Food is in my dna. I grew up watching my grandmother and the cooks at my great uncle's soul food restaurant. As I got older I knew my grandmother was standing beside me; guiding me. It was as if she was showing me exactly what I needed to do. This inspired my cooking. Pulling from recipes to create the dishes that my grandmother would make. Food was medicine I started cooking to make money and it turned into something much more. It helped me find my purpose. A passion that would help me inspire others .In spite of my record I was determined not to let my past determine my future. On May 9, 2014 I opened up Suggarplums Food 4 the Soul. That is when I knew that dreams really do come true. "You speak what you seek until you see what you say".
