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

A loan helped a businesswoman of color buy equipment and inventory for a community wine and beer store.

Joanne's story

My background as a Finance Director and currently a Fiscal Manager has provided me with the skills and knowledge needed to operate and manage a business. Additionally, I have been hosting wine tasting events for almost two years and found that many of my clients see my events as a means of sharing stories and building memories with friends. My motivation for my business is my family. This includes both immediate and extended family that has supported my vision from day one. They have given financially, as well as listened to my frustration along the way. For me, the satisfaction of seeing people together smiling, socializing, and having a great time moves me to want to offer this time to forget the problems of the day or week and wind down with friends and family. I hope to have The Vino Market as a place for everyone to come in, look around, talk about wine and beer and make a new friend by the time one leaves. In other words, come in as guests of ours and leave as family.
