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

A loan helped Chicago nurses purchase needed equipment and supplies to continue providing needed services at people's homes.

Tanisha's story

As a nurse for 25 plus years, I have found it frustrating that simple measures are sometimes not communicated effectively to clients. In my scope of work and all areas of life, I do my best to explain and do work that a person can understand while utilizing changes to improve their day-to-day activities. When I first started working as a nurse, the fast-paced routine did not leave room to spend "extra" time with patients that were needed. Very early on, I found myself creating notes, folders, and bringing little extra things to people to help ease their day. The purpose of my life is to nurse, in every sense of the word. With the help of a friend, I started the business with Kia Starks, who is also a nurse, to help carry out my vision of a nursing service that provided assistance in areas of life from a holistic view. From that venture, this project fully blossomed. This service, Nurse at Your Side has been a great asset to check family members especially now with so many places being restricted. More than ever, people are requiring suggestions and ways to keep the mind & body well. Without people being able to travel, I am able to go to the person and provide simple nursing services at their home or requested place.
